I got this recipe from a man named Ron Bean, who was from Australia.
The original recipe uses winter squash as a vegetable. I have, however, had
this soup with asparagus, carrots, pumpkin, spinach, or summer squash
substituted for the winter squash, and all of those were wonderful.
Guna - Satva, primarily, with some tamas and rajas. The guna can vary upon the exact proportion of ingredients.
- 1-2 lbs winter squash, or any other vegetable
- Equal quantity, by volume potatoes, peeled, boiled
- 1 6 oz can clams, shrimp, or other seafood, or equivalent fresh.
- 1 12 oz can coconut milk, or equivalent fresh
- 1 dash curry powder
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Halve, seed, and bake winter squash until done.
- Alternately, cook whatever vegetable you are substituting
- In a blender or food processor, puree the squash or other vegetables. Puree
the potatoes too.
- Puree the clams or other seafood with it.
- Pour in a soup pot or Dutch oven.
- Add a dash of curry powder. There should be a hint of curry in this.
It should not taste "curried" or be "hot".
- Add coconut milk
- Heat until warm.
- Add salt and pepper to taste.
Yield: 4-8 servings
