6 servings
1 medium butternut squash (about 3 pounds)
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 medium carrots, finely chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons minced fresh gingerroot
2 teaspoons curry powder
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) vegetable broth
1 can (13.66 ounces) coconut milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 cups hot cooked brown rice
1/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut, toasted
1/4 cup salted peanuts, coarsely chopped

Preheat oven to 400°. Cut squash lengthwise in half; remove and discard

Roast 40-45 minutes or until squash is tender. Cool  slightly.

and stir 1 minute longer. Add broth; bring to a boil.  Reduce heat;

and pepper to carrot  mixture; bring just to a boil, stirring 
occasionally. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Process in  batches in a 
blender until smooth.
 Return to pan; heat through. Top servings with rice, coconut, peanuts 
and cilantro. Yield: 6  servings.
