Soup on the brain…

November 4th, 2010

Last week I went on a soup making craze. I made four different types with great fall vegetables… sweet potato, pumpkin, butternut squash and, oh, tomato… then I froze them… I love coming home from a long day and being able to heat up some soup… this was my own creation… I wanted to try the Grains of Paradise… they were peppery and very good with butternut squash…

Butternut Squash and Grains of Paradise Soup
1 roasted butternut squash
1 onion, chopped
1 tps. olive oil
1 in ginger, sliced
1 cup apple cider
3 cups vegetable broth
1 tsp. grains of paradise, cracked
Salt and pepper

1. In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
2. Saute the onions and ginger until soft.
3. Add the butternut squash, grains of paradise, apple cider and vegetable broth.
4. Bring to a simmer and simmer until the liquid reduces. Puree the soup. If it is too liquidy, continue to simmer until it is the consistency you want.
