Curried Butternut squash and chickpea soup.

Curried Butternut squash and chickpea soup.

This is one of our go to meals on boxing nights, so quick to just reheat when we get back in the door. Bursting with goodness and protein. Deep curry flavours in this dish are a real winner with everyone in the house. Just be careful with the curry powder if you don't like it too hot.

Served here with toasted pumpkin and sunflower seeds for a little extra crunch.


  • 1 Med Red Onion,
  • 1 Butternut Squash,
  • 1 Can Cooked chickpeas (220 G drained),
  • 1 1/2 tbsp curry powder (mild or med depending on tastes),
  • 1 tsp salt,
  • 1 tsp black pepper,
  • 2 cloves garlic,
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil ( For frying),
  • 800 ml veg stock,
  • 170g yellow split peas,
  • 1 can coconut milk.


  1. Dice onion and garlic, add oil to pot and heat. Add onion and let soften, once softened add garlic and cook for 2 min more.
  2. Peel and chop butternut squash into roughly 1/2 " pieces, add curry powder and butternut squash to pot, coat squash as much as possible with curry powder.
  3. Add veg stock, salt and pepper, cook for 5 min.
  4. Add yellow split peas and cook until the butternut squash is soft enough to break with a wooden spoon. The yellow split peas should have thickened up the stock and become soft at this stage.
  5. Pour the soup in to a blender and blend until smooth, return to the pot.
  6. Add the chickpeas and coconut milk. Continue to cook for 5 min.


Serve in a large bow with some fresh crusty soup rolls.

I've never tried this but it looks tasty, especially with the seeds on top. :)


Oh it is so tasty, really warming and filling with the split peas. If you do try it @nikolina please let me know what you think. 😊


I came across a few of similar recipes. We don't really eat this kind of foods here in Serbia, with butternut squash and chickpea, to be more specific but I'll try to gather all the ingredients and make it.


Oh cool, Is it hard to come by butternut squash there? Please excuse my ignorance, I have never spoken to any one in Serbia. You can also make it with sweet potato too, that is just as tasty. 😉


That's totally fine, no worries.
It is, kind off, it's just one of those ingredients that are not commonly used in our cuisine, same as sweet potato, haha.
I know I can find chickpeas at the health food stores (bought it once to make hummus), but for butternut squash and sweet potato I have to go on a hunt. I guess I'll be able to find them at bigger grocery stores. :)


Yes, food hunting is the only hunting! Do let me know how you get on. Thanks

This looks so good! Chickpeas and butternut squash are my two favorite kitchen staples! I've never used curry powder before, though. I'll have to try this out!


Thanks a million for the resteem! Oh for sure the curry is delish with the butternut squash. I would also recommend the toasted seed topper.

That looks so delicious :) I love soups but my hubby is not a big fan of it so I don't get to eat it a lot =). Would love to try this. That bread looks delicious =)


Oh man, we have a soup dinner at least once a week, they are great! They also keep you fuller for longer than eating a meal and drinking water with it. Crazy stuff. Thanks for checking it out @nicoleslife 😊


I can come and visit you sometime and eat soup :D


LOL, yeah for sure, we usually make too much anyway!


:D better too much than too little :D
