It's a cool fall day here in Colorado...soup weather. Yesterday, at Costco I found butternut squash peeled and cubed in the fresh fruit/veggie room. So guess what we are having for dinner tonight? Here's my favorite recipe (from my friend, Erin).
Erin's Butternut Squash Soup:
- Mixed field greens OR chopped romaine lettuce
- Feta cheese
- Candied pecans OR sliced almonds (Caramelize plain sugar over med. heat in a skillet. Once it's in a liquid state, add the pecans. As soon as the pecans are coated, remove them from the pan and let them cool on foil. Careful! You don't want the sugar to burn.)
- OPTIONAL: sliced apples, sliced pears, artichoke hearts, bacon
- Toss with your favorite balsamic vinaigrette dressing. (Or make your own: veggie oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, celery seed, sugar, dry parsley.)
