Author Notes: This soup is a celebration of all things Fall. A Red Kuri squash soup, that I cook really simply with no particular twist, I don’t feel that it really needs any. I just go creative on the toppings : crispy bulgur with curcuma and fennel seeds, it adds a little depth to the soup. If you like some heat, I recommend also adding a pinch of chili powder !Charlotte I The Fox + The Knife
