Curried Spaghetti Squash Soup With Roasted Seeds

This blog was originally going to read Spaghetti Squash Sausage Boats but there was a quick change of direction when I sampled a bite.  I decided it needed to be a soup!  Curried Spaghetti Squash Soup!

This recipe started because a co-worker gave me a homegrown spaghetti squash.  I have never cooked one before.  Most recipes call for baking but I was running out the door for work so I thought “I’ll just put it in the crockpot”!

I used all my strength to cut it open.  I had no idea how hard the shells are!  Then I was scooping out the center and there were all these beautiful seeds.  It reminded me of pumpkin seeds so I put them in a bowl of water to soak.  I had plans for these!Curried spaghetti squash soup

After cleaning out the spaghetti squash I placed it on low heat in the crock pot (shell side down) with 2 cans of chicken broth.  I put the lid on and went to work.

When I returned 6 hours later it was cooked perfectly!  When I sampled it I knew right then that this was no longer going to be anything other than a soup!

I scooped out the spaghetti squash from its shell and put it in the blender along with the the chicken broth from the crock pot.  Next I added 1/4 cup of heavy cream, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon black pepper and 1 1/2 teaspoons hot madras curry powder.  Blended till smooth and returned to the crock pot with 1 diced and peeled medium sized potato, 1 diced small carrot and 3 chopped green onions (green part only).  I walked away for 3 more hours and viola!  Perfection!  But wait!  I have seeds soaking….

I rinsed off the seeds removing any squash particles patted them dry.  I roasted them in a little olive oil and salt @ 425° for about 10 minutes turning once until they were golden.

The seeds turned out perfect!  They resemble a roasted pumpkin seed but a bit sweeter with a creamier texture.  They were delicious and would add the perfect crunch as a topper to the soup.

There you have it!  Curried Spaghetti Squash Soup With Roasted Seeds was born!

I hope you get a chance to try- it was so tasty!  My husband even enjoyed it!

Thank for reading!
