Squash Bisque

I bought some peeled/cubed butternut squash and didn’t know what to do with it. I’ve never made soup before and was feeling kind of daring. The recipe seemed simple enough, so I thought I’d give it a shot.

Squash Bisque (from Erika, original recipe from Allrecipes.com)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/2 cup diced onion
1 large garlic clove, finely chopped
3/4 cup diced carrots
4 cups peeled and cubed butternut squash
2 1/2 cups vegetable or chicken stock
1/2 cup apple cider
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp thyme
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1/3 cup heavy cream

Heat the oil and melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir the onion and garlic in the butter and oil under tender.

Mix the carrots and squash into the pot. Pour in vegetable stock, and season with salt, pepper, thyme, and nutmeg. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until vegetables are tender.

In a blender or food processor, puree the soup mixture until smooth. Return to the pot, and stir in the heavy cream. Heat through, but do not boil. Serve warm with a dash of nutmeg.

This soup was amazing with the Tender Potato Bread.

    How nice of your husband to make these for you guys=) I’m glad you took down the spice and added zucchini. We’ve had a surplus around here and I can’t handle very spicy things. I might be trying this one out!

    I never thought to add zucchini to black bean burgers, but agree that it would help them stay moist – I’ll be adding the spicy though! 😀

    I’m always looking for new, tasty bean burger recipes! I bet the zucchini makes them stay super moist, which is great because many times bean burgers turn out dry…thanks for the recipe!
