butternut squash and sage soup with sage breadcrumbs

Ok, so here’s another butternut squash soup that you have to try.  I think Joseph and I actually liked this one better than the last one.  The sage is a really nice flavor and the breadcrumbs give it a little texture and a lot of richness.  Possibly too much richness.  I think I won’t add as much to mine next time because it was a little too rich for me.  We used extra breadcrumbs on some delicious butternut squash tortellini we got from Whole Foods.

spicy cauliflower soup

Like I’ve said before, I think cauliflower gets a bad rap but it can be quite deliscious when prepared well.  I was excited to see a cauliflower soup recipe in Alice Water’s The Art of Simple Food because soup weather is in full swing and how can you go wrong with Alice?

For the first few years of our relationship, Joseph wasn’t really into soups.  He was fine with it as an appetizer before dinner, but it was never really enough for him as a meal on its own.  Or so he thought.  Something has changed this fall and we’ve been making a lot of soups and Joseph’s getting pretty into it.

butternut squash soup

butternut squash soup

Ok, so I know how long it’s been since my last post.  Don’t worry, I have been eating, I’ve just been out of town a lot (including an amazing food and wine festival in Disney World!) and have been really busy.  But I do have some great things to share with you (just wait for the chicken meatballs!), including this butternut squash soup.

I don’t know if there’s a more quintessentially fall soup than butternut squash soup.  Unless maybe you make pumpkin soup….  I used to get a curried pumpkin soup with apples from the Whole Foods in DC that I loved.  It was so warm and spicy and the apples gave it a wonderful tartness that sent it over the edge.  So this fall I was hoping to find a similar recipe, but for butternut squash soup.  I didn’t quite, but I found this recipe from Emeril Legasse that was so easy, I had to try it.  It may not have the apples, but it’s really good, and like I said, very easy.
