Posts Tagged ‘Butternut squash and apple bisque’

It’s cold, grey and rainy today – a good day for soup!  There is nothing more inviting in the midst of a lazy Sunday than to smell the aromas of spices and sweet vegetables throughout the house.  One of my all-time favorites, butternut squash and apple bisque, delivers sweet mouthfuls of goodness with a good boost from cinnamon and nutmeg.  This soup makes an excellent first course to a special fall meal or a lovely luncheon main and although the results are impressive it is deceptively easy to cook.

I first started making this soup in Canada during the fall when I lived in to my first apartment with my good friend Jill.   We were both novice cooks, liked to experiment with wholesome foods and share our creations.  Both of us loved the sweet flavours in this soup so we looked forward to enjoying a bowl and a good gab. Jill’s most memorable creation for me was a soft goat cheese, raisin and spice carrot sandwich.  Years later I found a similar recipe for such a sandwich on the internet and as you would guess I make myself.  Delicious!   She was definitely on to something.

Butternut squash is best in the fall so now is the time to enjoy this gem.  MaryFrances has created a couple of gorgeous wine pairings that will send you into heaven.  I wish you a happy fall enjoying all the beautiful produce and look forward to cooking with you soon.
