Curried Butternut Squash Soup

 My inbox has been full  of soups and slow cooked meals that have my mind littered with thoughts of pumpkins, apples, squash, crock-pots, and all things fall. Thank you all for posting such wonderful recipes!!

 A neighbor happened to have an excess of butternut squash on hand and brought a box-full over to us, and i just happened to stumble upon an immersion blender on sale at a local "junk shop" for 8 dollars.. still in the box. I was dying to try it out and came up with this creamy dreamy soup.
Also, the good folks at Champlain Valley Apiaries, in Middlebury, Vermont had sent me some of their freshly made honey, which i was more than happy to incorperate into my recipe. Their website can be found here at
I do want to say that all ingredients are approximate, you can adjust to your taste buds of course.

1 butternut squash, peeled, de-seeded and cooked until soft. I like to bake mine for maximum flavor.
2 Tablespoons butter
1 medium onion, chopped
3 large carrots, run through the food processor
2 quarts chicken or vegetable stock
1/4 cup honey
2 cups half and half
1/2 cup cooked rice, I used brown rice
1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1/2 teaspoon sage
Curry paste to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
In large pot cook onion and carrots in butter till soft. Add chicken stock and  and simmer for about 15 minutes.Blend with immersion blender or run through food processor. Add honey, half and half, Old Bay, sage, curry, and salt and pepper to taste.

As always, thank you so much for stopping by and i hope you are enjoying this beautiful *snicker* fall weather..

Champlain Valley Apiaries sent me some of their honey to sample for this blog. I gladly and proudly represent their products without being paid.

Thanks for finding me and liking me...again :) I have had so many issues with FB here lately, ugh! I tried to switch all my friends to my desserts in my kitchen fan page, and messed it all up. I am glad you found me :) I hope others will follow!

I always appreciate curry and butternut squash together, but the addition of old bay is a new one for me. I'll have to give it a try. Great recipe!
