i tried a recipe i got from my friend, justine. it's roasted sweet potato and butternut squash soup. i used korean sweet potato (go-guh-mah) which worked just as well.
here's the recipe.
Roasted Sweet Potato and Butternut Squash Soup
1 onion, peeled and roughly chopped
1 large butternut squash - cut into large chunks and peeled
1 large sweet potato - cut into large rings and peeled
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
5 cups of chicken or vegetable stock
salt and pepper
1. Put butternut squash and sweet potato and onion in a large roasting tray. Dowse with olive oil and season with salt, pepper and add the cinnamon and nutmeg.
2. Roast at 400 degrees for about an hour or until tender
3. Blend the vegetables with added stock in batches to your preferred consistency - should be fairly thick. ( I used a stick blender.)
this will go great with a nice warm sandwich. for dinner, try chicken with rosemary. because the soup is on the sweeter side, something savory will compliment it very nicely.
i enjoyed my yummy bowl of butternut squash soup on this fine rainy day.
as campbell's said... it's mm..mm.. good!
