Curried zucchini soup, from Bewitching Kitchen

Curried zucchini soup: winter goodness, from Bewitching Kitchen (on Soup Chick).

After the zucchini glut of late summer, I need time to recuperate from all zucchini all the time. By the time the weather turns cold, though, I crave all varieties of squash again.

This 10-minute shrimp and mushroom Thai curry comes together quickly, accommodates any vegetables you have on hand, and feels a lot fancier than it is. (If shrimp isn't your thing, you could substitute chicken or tofu.) Before a long weekend of all-turkey, all-the-time, a spicy Thai shrimp curry really appeals to me, and I love that it only takes ten minutes to make.
