Thai-Spiced Butternut Bisque with Curry Roasted Chickpeas – a cozy and comforting fall soup that’s super healthy and easy to make! ~Butternut squash, red curry paste, coconut, cilantro, curry roasted chickpeas~
THIS SOUP. Or rather, *bisque* (it’s some pretty thick stuff… in fact I’ve used it as a sauce). Is the perfect fall soup. It’s warm and cozy, flavorful, healthy, and has a little zip to it from that red curry paste. Where’d it come from? Well, a couple years ago I became really good friends with a coworker (let’s call her Kelly… ’cause that’s actually her name) who introduced me to her signature butternut squash soup recipe. She made up a batch once and shared some with me, and I was instantly hooked on the warm, velvetty, butternutty (word? Welp, now it is.) goodness.
In fact, it’s so delicious that, the second time she made me some bisque, I pretty much had to grieve the loss when I left it in the fridge at work over the weekend and it got thrown away, container and all. Also I felt terrible because… well, wouldn’t you feel terrible if your friend made you soup –aka an act of love– and you LOST it? Oy. Good thing she forgave me and still continues to share it with me when I babysit or stop by.
Bottom line, friends that give you homemade soup are keepers.
