This is the second time I have made this soup. The first time was when my friend Rosanna suggested that we make dinner make for her roommates and neighbours. She wanted to get to know some of the neighbours( in her building) better, and thought inviting them over for dinner would be fun. I agreed. Rosanna, loves to support me in everything I do, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to share my food with others. Well, at least that’s what she told me. I think she was happy to have someone take charge of cooking dinner for 8 people in her apartment kitchen. I was up for the task, because that is just the type of thing I love to do.
Check out this video of Rosanna and Jon performing their song “Hold Me Down”. I really love this song. I am warning you. It is catchy and will very likely get stuck in your head if you listen to it a few times over. Enjoy.
I know what you are thinking. “Not another butternut squash soup recipe.” Yes, another butternut squash soup recipe. Soup seems to be a popular thing to make with butternut squash. It seems like everybody is making it these days. It is a classic warming winter soup for good reason. It is absolutely delicious. I know that I posted a butternut squash soup recipe before Christmas, but I felt that this one was different enough to share. The last one wasroasted butternut squash and parsnip.
The main similarity between the two recipes, other than the fact that they both have butternut squash in them, is that I roasted the butternut squash for both of them. I love the added depth of flavour that roasting brings to the soup.
The spices used in this soup are similar to those used in some thai curries. Lemongrass, ginger, red chili peppers, even cumin and of course coconut milk. This makes for an incredibly flavourful soup. The roasted squash brings a sweetness which is balanced with the fire from the chili peppers. Then, add the kick of lemongrass and ginger. Oh baby! With the amazing taste of coconut milk to pull it all together. Continue reading →
