Velvety Squash Soup

Winter squash is a quintessential holiday flavor, and in this soup it is no exception. Subtle flavorings like cider, molasses, and a bit of curry powder accentuate the flavor of roasted squash, while a whirl in the blender ensures a smooth and creamy texture. This soup is great for a warming solo lunch on a snowy day, or as the first course of an elaborate dinner-party meal.
