Comforting, warming, simply perfect… Away from the chilly brisk outdoors, a warm bowl of soup sounds so right. Whether complex or simple, such an inviting meal helps take the chilly edge off what fall has to offer.

 

Soup is like a good friend giving you a big hug.

For the soup recipe, I infused the soup with thyme and clove. Much like adding a bay leaf or two, these two seasoning impart a delicate whisper of flavor that works so well with the more complex flavor of curry powder. I also did not add any sweetener a lot of butternut soups have. I feel adding onions and sweet potato adds an earthy sweetness on their own. So pull up a chair, we’ll have soup!
