Gingered and Curried Butternut and Potato Soup

Pam Stewart


I've been trying to come up with a tasty Butternut Squash Soup this winter. Some seem too bland and others too spicey for our multi-generational household. The ginger and curry give this a nice kick and the garlic seems to mellow it just enough for my family.
