Ingredients

1 butternut squash 900 g
6 tbsp olive oil 90 mL
1 1/2 onions, diced 300 g
3 zucchini, diced 380 g
1 tsp curry powder 3 g
5 cups chickpeas/garbanzo beans (canned), rinsed and drained 1.25 L
3 cups chicken broth 750 mL
3 cups Greek yogurt, plain, 2% M.F. 750 g
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 30 mL

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the soup.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F.
  2. Cut the squash in half lengthwise, remove the seeds. Place the halves on a baking sheet, cut side down. Bake about 45-50 min until soft. Alternatively, cook each halve separately in a microwave oven: Place each halve in a bowl, partially covered, then cook at high intensity about 8 min for each halve. Let the halves cool down, carve out the pulp then dice it into 1,5 cm cubes. Set the cubes aside.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the vegetables: Dice the zucchini and chop the onion.
  4. Heat the oil in a pot over medium heat. Add the onion, zucchini and curry powder. Cook, with stirring, until softened, 2-3 min. Add the squash, chickpeas and broth. Cook over medium heat until the zucchini are tender, about 10 min. Purée the soup in a blender and adjust the seasoning.
  5. Pour the soup into bowls, swirl in the yogurt and extra virgin olive oil. Serve.
