Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

IMG_8635

I love to make this soup in the fall when all the pumpkins and squashes are suddenly appearing in the stores, but yesterday I invited my ladies over for dinner and couldn’t decide what to serve. I ended up with this lovely Roasted Butternut Squash Soup (which I prepared the day before) and the Quinoa Kale Salad. Some Acme Bread, Cowgirl Creamery Cheese and Napa Wine on top (support local food!) and wonderful company made the evening just perfect.

 

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

1 Butternut Squash (medium size)

A bunch of fresh Garlic Cloves

1 big or 2 small onions

2 Carrots

1 Red Chili or Red Chili Flakes

4 cups Vegetable Stock

1 can Coconut Milk

Salt and Pepper

 

1. Heat the oven to 400F/200C.

2. Cut the Butternut Squash in half lengthwise and scope out the seeds. Cut into approximately 1 inch/2 cm thick slices (keep the skin on) and place on a baking sheet. Sprinkle some olive oil, salt and pepper on top and roast in the oven until tender and lightly browned (appr. 50 min). Halfway, turn the slices and also add some unpeeled garlic cloves (I use 5-10 cloves!!) and let them roast together with the squash.

3. Dice the onion, carrots and chili pepper into medium size pieces. Saute in a heated pan with some oil, until soft but not browned. Add the Vegetable Stock and boil on low heat for 15-20 min.

3. When the Butternut Squash and Garlic Cloves are ready, remove the skin and add the meat to the soup. Boil for another 5 minutes and then use a blender/food processor to blend smooth.

4. Add Coconut Milk and Salt and Pepper to taste.

5. Optional: Garnish with sprouts, pumpkin seeds, parsley, chives or try to add pieces of goat cheese.

Enjoy!

    How many drivers check their tyre pressure on a regular basis? Once a week, condensing unit – ZR250KC-TWD-522 33143,, once a month,, ZR190KC-TFD-522 – 4TCS-12.2 bitzer compressor 3621, maybe once a year!

      Comunque l'esplosione di Betelgeuse potrebbe essere imminente. Ovviamente imminente in astronomia significa anche un milione di anni ;-) Così come dire che il Sole esaurirà l'idrogeno fra molto tempo non significa certo che lo farà tra mille anni XD

      : Au sujet des sectaires que vous évoquez pensez-vous qu’ils soient assez nombreux pour perturber davantage de personnes qu’eux-mêmes entre eux-mêmes? Je pense qu’il suffit de ne pas alimenter la polémique pour qu’ils finissent par tourner en rond. A mon avis « l’ennemi » n’est pas lÃÂ

      No, Libya is still salvageable, the last month of denial, hasn’t made thjs any easier, Jibril was replaced by Shagour, and nowzZidan, Magarief is in a weaker position, Bel Hadj’s proxies are in a stronger one, the Library of Congress report commissionedlast month, explains why.
