GREEN FOCUS: Cool Things That Are Green

Butternut Squash n Apple Bisque Soup Recipe
12/01/2009

‘Tis the season for comfort food.  Food that is warm and tasty.  Food that comes in the form of soup. 

Who better to ask than Nancy Ettinger, the owner of one our favorite downtown food carts, Savor Soup House, located on SW 10th and Alder.  She serves delicious, homemade soups, salads, sandwiches and grilled cheese from seasonal, quality ingredients.


Butternut Squash & Apple Bisque: Serves 4
 

  • 4-5 Cups Vegetable Stock
  • 1 large Butternut Squash, peeled and cubed
  • 2 medium tart Green Apples, peeled and cubed
  • 1 medium Onion, chopped
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cayenne
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Black Pepper


In large stock pot heat the butter on medium heat. Add onions and apples. Add cinnamon, nutmeg and cayenne. Saute until lightly caramelized (approximately 10 minutes).

Add squash and just enough stock to cover. Let cook until the squash is very tender (approximately 15-20 minutes). 

Puree with a hand mixer or in a blender (be very careful in the blender as the contents are hot. I like to leave the top on but take out the middle plastic piece and cover with a towel so that the steam goes into the towel.)

Once the soup is nice and smooth add lemon juice and cream. Stir until incorporated. Season with salt and pepper. If you like it on the sweeter side you can add 1-2 tbsp of brown sugar.  

I like to top this soup with toasted pumpkin seeds.

Enjoy!

Next time you’re downtown, come and visit me at the Savor Soup House on SW 10th & Alder.
