In a pot over medium heat, soften the onion, garlic and ginger in the oil.  Add the squash, curry powder and mustard.  Cook for about 2 minutes.  Add the broth and bring to a boil.

Cover and simmer over low heat for about 20 minutes or untill the squash is tender.

Puree the soup until smooth.  Season with salt and pepper.
