This Indian soup pairs perfectly with some roasted chickpeas and a sweet Indian Mango Lassi smoothie, or even as an appetizer for Skinny Chicken Tikka Masala.

You ever buy a vegetable and wonder what to do with it?

I do it all the time…

My answer to my red kuri squash purchase was this exotic Indian inspired soup. If you love the flavors of Indian cuisine, you will love this soup.

I cheated with the naan.

Trader Joe’s sells frozen garlic naan that only takes 2 minutes to heat up. I’ve had requests to create a naan recipe from scratch (I promise I didn’t forget, it’s still on my to do list) but store bought naan worked perfectly fine, they sell naan in most supermarkets nowadays.

I was even thinking of cutting the naan into small squares to create garlic naan croutons, wouldn’t that be cool?

The serving size will slightly vary depending on the size of your kuri squash. Adding chili pepper gives this soup some heat but I’m leaving that optional. Roasted pumpkin, or acorn squash would also work. Added bonus, this is vegan and gluten free!

  1. We grew Red Kuri squash this year and they are easy to grow and taste great !! You can steam them and eat the skin too. They grow fast and the seeds are at the nursery. I am not a winter squash fan but these are good like a sweet potato nice with butter and salt. Make good pies and no need to peel. I am shocked they are not in all grocery stores.
