Acorn Squash Soup with Bacon

In our CSA boxes we have been receiving a lot of squash lately (which makes me SO happy!)  As I had 3 white acorn squash hanging about I decided to try this recipe which I found on  All I can say is YUMMY!!!  Greg and I had two full bowls each and the kids gobbled theirs up too.  The bacon isn't necessary, but it did make a nice contrast to the sweet and slightly spicy soup.

1 small onion
1/4 cup chopped celery
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
1/2 teaspoon dill weed
1/4 teaspoon curry powder
dash cayenne pepper
2 cups chicken broth
1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
3 cups mashed cooked acorn squash
salt and pepper to taste
5 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled

  • In a large saucepan, saute the onion and celery in butter. Stir in flour, bouillon, dill, curry and cayenne until blended. Gradually add broth and milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add the squash, salt and pepper; heat through.
  • In a blender or food processor, process the soup in batches until smooth. Pour into bowls; garnish with bacon.
