2 tbsp olive oil

2 bay leaves
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 liter hot chicken stock
1 tsp mild curry powder

Servings  

Preparation

Heat a heavy-based pan with the olive oil and butter, then add the onions, bay leaves and a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Stir well, then cover the pan with a lid and cook over a low heat for 5-7 minutes until the onions begin to soften.

Meanwhile, bring the stock to a simmer in another saucepan. Add the curry powder to the onions and stir for another minute. Tip in the squash and add a little more oil to prevent the squash from scorching too quickly. When you add the butternut squash, add the apples at the same time with a pinch of castor sugar to bring out the fragrance and extra flavours hidden in the soup. (It will also give the finished soup a velvety texture.) Cook for about 10-12 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the squash is tender and lightly caramelized.

Pour in just enough hot stock to cover the vegetables and gently simmer for another 5-10 minutes.

Meanwhile, lay the pancetta in a single layer in a hot nonstick frying pan. Fry over medium heat until golden-brown and crisp. Turn over to cook the other side. Drain on kitchen paper and allow to cool slightly.

Fish out and discard the bay leaves. In batches, purée the soup in a food processor or liquidiser until smooth. Return the soup to the pan to reheat. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Ladle the soup into warm bowls and garnish with some chopped coriander and a slice of crispy pancetta on top.

Now, that wasn’t too hard, was it?

I too roasted the squash before adding to the onion. I didn't have any coriander leaves (couldn't find it in our supermarket). Taste was very rich without having to add heavy cream and it had a touch of heat. Will add this recipe to my repertoire

This was a fantastic recipe. I used brown sugar and it was just about perfect. Both my picky 7 year old and my 10 month old devoured it.

Great recipe. 1 liter = approximately 4.2c And yes, pre roast the squash before adding it to the onion and curry. Pancetta made for a great texture addition

I couldn't make this as the recipe was foreign to me.. I am from USA and we don't have liters. I couldn't understand a lot of it. Could you do a revised recipe?

Super even tho I ended just chucking it all in the pan together - after the onion & curry powder stage.... Strong initial taste complemented by a lingering heat.
