Well, we did this with a few of them.
And you passed on some great recipes for a few others. (Thank you so much!)
And now I'm going to pass on a recipe to you.
A non-bloggy friend (yes, I do have those) passed this one on to me, and after tweaking it a tad bit, I've turned it into a vegetarian's delight! Don't worry though . . . even if you aren't a vegetarian, I'm pretty sure you will LOVE it! I hope to make this for a first course to begin our Thanksgiving or Christmas feast.
Butternut Squash Soup
Here's what you need:
~1/4 cup chopped onions
~4 T. margarine or butter
~6 cups peeled and cubed butternut squash
~3 cups of veggie broth or vegetable stock
~1/2 tsp dried marjoram
~1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
~a pinch or two of cayenne pepper
~1 1/4 package of neufachatel cheese or light cream cheese
Here's what you do:
1) Saute onions in margarine until tender.
2) Add squash, veggie broth, marjoram, black pepper, cayenne pepper. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer until squash is tender.
3) Add squash mixture and neufachatel or cream cheese to blender. (I would have loved to add these two things to my food processor . . . if I had one . . . I can always dream.) Blend until smooth
4) Return soup to original pan and heat until warm but do not boil.
Enjoy with a batch of homemade bread! Yummy!
