toppings for curried butternut squash soup?

I am serving this soup for Thanksgiving and need an idea for a pretty and tasty topping.

      Ancho chili, seeded and slit down the side. Fry in oil which will puff up the chile skin.

      Crumble on soup. Makes a nice smokey flavor.

    2. I recently had a similar soup topped with about 1/2 teaspoon of chili oil - it was wonderful!

      1. funny, we were just talking about this 5 minutes ago. here's the version we love. we have served this many times. when my wife makes it, she adds thin slices of the granny apple in a circle on the top with the cider cream in the middle. YUM!

        1. I love some roasted pumpkin seeds on my curry squash soups. Nice little crunch, and the flavor is really nice. My store carries them but calls them Pepitas.

          1. We like ours with a dollop of sour cream and some fresh diced parsley. Nice and simple.
