Here is a delicious Fall produce recipe I have created just for you.
I did not even get any inspiration from a cookbook as it can sometimes happen. I have documented it step by step not only to help me remember what I did but also for you to easily achieve the same yummy result.
I hope you will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating (and eating) it!
(I serve 4 people and preserve or freeze the rest)
– 1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cubed
– 1 sweet potato, peeled and cubed
– 1 yam, peeled and cubed
– 1/2 cup frozen sweetcorn (or fresh if readily available)
– 8 cups chicken stock or vegetable stock if you are vegetarian
– 1/2 tsp ground ginger
– 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
– 6 tbsp non hydrogenated margarine
– 1 tsp brown sugar (or better, coconut sugar)
– 4 drops vanilla extract
– pepper to taste (no need for salt if you are using stock)
– optional for serving: 2 tbsp of cranberries, 1 stem of rosemary, parmesan shavings to taste.
– Prepare your veggies and put them in a large cooking pot.
– Add enough stock to cover the veggies and bring to a boil.
– Reduce to medium heat and cook for 20-30 min (until veggies are tender enough to be pureed)
– With a hand blender or a standing blender puree the soup.
– Add 3tbs of margarine, all the spices and 2 drops of vanilla extract.
– Set aside.
– In a small pan, gently heat the 3 remaining tbs of margarine and add the sweetcorn (it is ok if it is still frozen). Add 1 tsp of sugar. Mix and cook on medium-low heat until the corn becomes tender and golden or “caramelized”. Add the 2 remaining drops of vanilla extract.
– Ladle the soup in serving bowl, top with parmesan, 1 tbs of corn, a few cranberries and the rosemary and serve while hot.
– This soup freezes very well (without the corn, which should be frozen separately). I also love preserving my soups, so now I have a few jars available for the coming weeks!
P.S. : I jumped on my elliptical trainer while the soup was cooking so this became part of my fitness routine 🙂
