Winter Squash Soup

• 29 October 2009
























These blue pots are really coming in handy, I must say (still kicking myself for not tracking down more). I made a batch of my favorite squash soup and used them as little serving pieces. My husband is not a squash soup fan, but even he loves this recipe. Needless to say I make it a few times every Autumn...especially when Costco stocks conveniently packaged cubed squash. Talk about a time saver! Once you buy your pre-cubed squash, all you'll need to do is cube a couple of acorn squash and you're good to go. I garnish mine with a dollop of creme fraiche (or sour cream if unavailable) and a sage leaf.

For those of you who've eaten at The Sentinel in San Francisco, do you know of a squash soup recipe that mimics the one they serve there? It's quite different from this version but very tasty as well.

p.s. thanks Jordan, for the recommendation to eat there :)

I've never eaten there, but here is another squash soup recipe to try that I just shared over at Craftzine.com

I love those little pots. Wish I could find some here or online to order. They're so cute!

Loving those blue pots, they are gorgeous and what a great colour. The squash soup looks scrumptious as well.

The squash soup looks divine in those blue pots. What a great way to serve it. Thanks for the tip about costco squash, I've been searching for just the very thing.

When you next visit the SF Bay Area you may want to make a side trip to San Mateo to visit The Gourmet Corner; you will find this yogurt there. I love the yogurt and use the containers as serving pieces and table decorations. Perhaps the folks at the The Gourmet Corner can also tell you where else you can find this yogurt in the U.S.

My sister-in-law brought me one of those blue pots from her recent trip to Paris...yes, ONE! What can I do with one?! I begged her to bring me some, I guess I should just be happy with one.

This was my favorite squash soup recipe for years. But. . . For the last 2 years I've been making Golden Winter Soup from Cooking Light, and I think it is even better (and easier). Definitely make the Gruyere toast to go with it. Delicious!

Thanks for the heads up on the pre-cut squash at costco! I had a butternut squash soup at Lark Creek Steak in San Francisco that I'm still trying to duplicate!

Stephanie said...

Fabulous tips! Thank you all! I'll have to try these other recipes out this season.

Thanks for info on the butternut squash. I think I'll actually get some to puree for baby food. I'll try the soup too.
