    from "Soup, A Way of Life" by Barbara Kafka

    This vegetarian soup can be a silky and succulent first course for a fall or winter evening; but I prefer to serve it as a main course with boiled rice on the side and a sprinkling of raisins and slivered almonds on top. A chutney would not be out of place.

    Makes 8 cups; 4 to 6 Main-Course Servings or 8 First-Course Servings

    2 medium acorn squash, cut in half lengthwise, and seeds and fibers removed
    1/4 cup vegetable oil
    4 teaspoons black mustard seed
    3 tablespoons curry powder
    2 large Granny Smith or other tart apples, quartered, cored, cut into 10-inch cubes, and tossed with the juice of 1 lime
    1 medium onion, cut into chunks
    10 medium cloves garlic, smashed and peeled
    1 1/2 tablespoons very finely chopped peeled ginger
    4 cups vegetable broth
    Lime juice, to taste
    2 teaspoons kosher salt

    For Serving
    1 lime, sliced across into very thin rounds
    3/4 cup yogurt

    Heat the oven to 500°F. Roast the squash cut side up in a roasting pan for 50 minutes, or until soft. Scoop the pulp from the squash.
    In a medium saucepan, stir together the vegetable oil and mustard seeds over medium heat until the seeds are popping (be careful – it is very easy to burn the spices if the oil gets too hot). Stir in the curry powder and cook, stirring constantly, over medium-low heat for about 1 1/2 minutes.
    Stir in the apples, squash, onion, garlic, ginger, and stock. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat. Simmer for 20 minutes, or until the apples and onions are soft.
    In a food processor, working in batches, puree the soup; or pass through the medium disc of a food mill. The soup can be made ahead to this point and refrigerated for up to 3 days.
    Return the soup to the pot and heat through. Season with the lime juice and salt. Top each serving with a thin slice of lime and a dollop of yogurt.
