Subtly spicy and decidedly comforting, this Indian-influenced acorn squash soup makes a great autumn supper with a slice of crusty bread. The recipe came to me when my husband was in bed with a nasty cold, and my refrigerator was almost empty. All I had was an acorn squash, half an onion, peppers from our back porch garden and spices in the cupboard. The soup didn't exactly restore my husband to full health (at least not immediately!), but he did enjoy the soup even with his diminished sense of taste and smell.
