Winter Squash in Coconut Milk (Fusion Soup)

“Is it sweet? Is it savory? Eat it warm? Eat it cold? Puree it? Leave it chunky? Yes to all! Start or finish the meal; add more brown sugar or honey if you like it sweeter. It's good every which way. For a low fat version, skip the butter and use lite coconut milk. From Mark Bittman in the New York Times. Prep time does not include time to cool.”
