It’s the time of year for pumpkin! Aside from pumpkin pie, pumpkin bars, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin donuts, pumpkin ice cream/milkshakes, etc, it’s also the time of year I bust out the Pumpkin/butternut squash soup.
This pureed soup contains all the good stuff…roasted fresh pumpkins, roasted butternut squash, mirepoix (onions, carrots, celery), usually BACON (or not for vegetarians), thyme, good broth, a little cream, butter, and cinnamon/nutmeg (but not too much to make it taste like a dessert). It’s savory, sweet, and rich all at once. So good! When it comes time to make it next month, I’ll try to post the recipe (approximated of course, since I don’t cook using recipes typically)
Another great pumpkin recipe this time of year is pumpkin cheesecake, which I’ll be making as well at some point!
