This Curried Butternut Squash Soup with Spicy Kale Chips is a delicious, hearty and healthy curried soup with a blend of butternut squash, potatoes, and carrots.
This past weekend, I celebrated Wifemamafoodie.com’s 1 year anniversary! I honestly can’t believe it has been that long! As I mention in my About Page, I began this blog as an extension of what I was already doing on Instagram; sharing recipes I had “healthified” for my family and I.
Check out the recipe that kicked it off, Glazed Pumpkin Crumb Muffins, which are still a family favorite!
Starting this blog has been such a blessing. I’ve had the opportunity to meet new people and to join an awesome community of inspiring and supportive fellow bloggers. It has also allowed me to turn my passion for food and photography in a small business. Most of all, this blog has given me a space to share my humble recipes that I continually create in my little kitchen each week with you all!
I just want to take this time to thank you all for you continued support. You don’t know how much your sweet comments on each post, tagging me in you Wifemamafoodie inspired dishes on Instagram, or the kind emails you send mean to me. You are the reason I continue to keep this blog going. Please don’t hesitate to email or leave a comment asking questions or if you have a particular recipe you’d like to see added. You are appreciated and I value your input and feedback!
To my family and friends: Thanks for taste-testing, proof-reading, and helping me to brainstorm ideas. Thank you for sending me emails and “idea” pins on Pinterest. The thought that you give to me and this passion of mine truly means so much!
I’d like to give a sincere round of applause, and big hug and kiss to my dear husband and children. They have been so gracious (and patient) this year allowing me to photograph our food (through rumbling bellies;) before we eat it and sacrificing some family time for me to work on the blog. My husband also helps with the technical side of the blog, since I’m am like a deer in headlights with it all! Please know that your hard work and sacrifices do not go unnoticed or unappreciated! Thank you for all you do and for your constant support and encouragement. I love you so much!
Finally, I thank God for giving me this avenue in which to pursue my passion. For the grace to continue on week after week and for the constant flow of ideas and inspiration. Even though I’m not always the best daughter, you remain the best Father. Thank you for continually loving this undeserving heart of mine.
The recipe I want to share with you today is inspired by the upcoming fall season! I know we still technically have a couple weeks of summer left, but after school starts and especially after labor day, when pools close for the season, sweaters and boots are in all the stores, and Starbucks begins selling their Pumpkin Spice Latte, it’s just hard not to get excited for the fall time! Who’s with me?(anyone?!)
This is a warm curried soup with a blend of butternut squash, potatoes, carrots, and onions. I also added some spicy kale chips for texture and because they’re just yummy. Sometimes being yummy is reason enough, am I right?
We love to eat this soup with some warm, toasted naan, but you can use another bread of choice or omit altogether. I hope you enjoy this soup as much as we did! If you make it please comment below! Your feedback helps me and others to know what works and what doesn’t. Also, tag #wifemamafoodie on Instagram so that I can see your creations!
