  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Step 2

    Cut acorn squash in half and remove seeds and pulp. Place cut-side down in a baking dish; add about 1 inch of water.
  3. Step 3

    Roast in the preheated oven until a knife can be easily inserted, 20 to 30 minutes.
  4. Step 4

    While squash roasts, heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute onion until almost translucent, about 5 minutes. Mix in garlic and ginger. Add apple and cook, stirring regularly to keep from sticking, until it starts to get mushy, 7 to 10 minutes. Pour in 1/4 of the chicken broth. Add curry powder, cinnamon, cardamom, cayenne, salt, and pepper.
  5. Step 5

    Remove squash from the oven and let cool enough to handle, about 5 minutes. Remove skin carefully, chop flesh roughly with a knife, and mash some of the flesh.
  6. Step 6

    Add squash to the pot with remaining chicken broth. Simmer soup over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 10 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Pour into large bowls and serve.
