Quick & Easy: Curried Summer Squash Soup

Summer squash is in season; these yellow and green beauties they come in many shapes and sizes and can be cooked in many different ways. This soup is very easy to make and can be done in under 20 minutes. Because soup freezes so well, I always make extra. There is nothing better than being able to pull a healthy, home-cooked meal out of the freezer after an extra long day at work! So be aware that the ingredients in this recipe are for 8 servings.

Also, for those who do not like curry, you can make this soup without it!
