Random Recipes does No Croutons Required!!
What a totally fantastic challenge this month! Kudos to both Dom and Jac for being brave enough to host this joint challenge! The theme this month...soup! Perfect for the weather, perfect for the time of year and perfect for me! I try really hard to make at least one big batch of soup a week...something to serve for a meal and then to stretch out over 2 or 3 lunches at work.
Keeping that in mind, my choice wasn't entirely random...it was planned...but it was one of those last minute selections that required a trip out to the grocery store.
The link for this month's recipe comes from one of my favourite time wasting websites, Tastespotting. I spied it last weekend when I had a spare hour or so to surf and came across this recipe on Elana's Pantry for Butternut Squash and Apple Soup.
This soup is easy to prepare, you just chuck it all in and sauté for a bit until adding the stock. I made it with veggie stock, making it veggie...but use chicken stock if you like. The cinnamon was a really nice, seasonal addition...but I think next time I would use less...and maybe less apple.
