One of my favorite things about fall is that all sorts of lovely winter squashes come into season.
The beauty of winter squash is, you really don't need to do a lot to make a tasty dish. They take a while to roast, but they already have lovely, complex flavors.
Here's my favorite squash soup recipe:
- Quarter two granny smith apples and divide two squash into eight pieces each. (Use butternut for a sweet soup or acorn squash for a more nutty soup.) Roast until soft.
- Combine with stock (I like turkey stock), nutmeg, and cinnamon, and give the flavors a chance to meld together.
- My favorite part: serve with toasted nuts, dried cranberries or cherries, and diced apples. Yum!
