It’s soup season!

The weather is getting a bit cooler (even though in southern France it’s still quite warm). Autumn is a great season with its’ crisp cool weather and colorful landscapes. It’s of course pumpkin, squash and apple season. Halloween is coming up and of course Thanksgiving! Today’s recipe is one of our weekly classics: red kuri squash soup. It’s so simple and quite fast to make, you should try it out!

Serves 2-4 people


  • 1 large red kuri squash (organic)
  • 1 teaspoon of curcuma
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • 1 teaspoon of coriander
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Parsley
  • Water
  • Olive oil

Dice the red kuri squash into even cubes. At medium heat add the squash along with the spices and a cup of water. Cover and stir occasionally. When the squash is cooked (about 20 minutes later) add the chopped garlic and parsley to the squash off heat. Then mix in a food processor or a blender with olive oil (add water if the soup isn’t liquid enough).

Why this is good for me:
This is a simple but very nourishing soup with a lot of antioxidants, plus it’s colorful and has an amazing texture!

    This looks lovely!! I made a similar soup recently, and made a parsley-mint pistou to mix into the soup that was SO much better than I expected it to be! It gave such a wondeful herb infusion to the soup. In case you’re interested:
    For pistou:
    3/4 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves
    1/2 cup loosely packed fresh flat-leaf parsley sprigs
    1 large scallion, chopped (1/2 cup) (I used chives instead of scallion since that’s all I had on hand)
    1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    2 tablespoons water
    1/4 teaspoon salt

    Pulse mint, parsley, and scallion in a food processor until finely chopped. With motor running, add oil in a stream, then add water and salt, blending until incorporated.

    Swirl 1 tablespoon pistou into each bowl of soup.

    Cela a l’air très bon. Nous avons aussi mangé de la soupe hier, et avons même vu des optima ratons au supermarché et pense à toi, et a une de tes recédante recettes. C’était une soupe au poivron rouges, patates douces et oignons et ail.

      Zut, j’étais en clavier américain, et l’ordinateur à corrige le message à sa façon. J’espère que tu as compris.
