  1. Heat olive oil in a heavy pot over medium heat. Add minced garlic and chopped onions, stir to coat. Add thinly sliced carrots and cook for 3 minutes, or until they start to get soft.
  2. Add squash. Stir and cook for a few minutes, until squash is soft and tender. After a few minutes, add salt to taste and the curry powder.
  3. Pour in wine if using. Let cook for 30 seconds, then pour in chicken broth. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover pot, and cook for 1 hour. After 1 hour, taste and adjust seasonings. Turn off heat.
  4. Puree soup using a blender. Return to soup pot and bring to a simmer.
  5. If you use decide to add cream you'll want to "float" it on top of the soup by first pouring it into a teaspoon and then carefully dripping it over the top. To make a lovely design, drip a few small parallel lines over the top, take a spoon and swirl through them in a semi-circle around the bowl. It looks something like a leaf pattern. Not as difficult as it sounds; it just takes a little practice.
