RECIPE IDEA: Harvest Butternut Squash Soup (Vegan, Gluten Free)
Hi, it’s Lois at Recipe Idea Shop, with a new Butternut Squash Soup recipe, Harvest Butternut Squash Soup. This is much the same as the previous version, but I made it vegan and gluten free since I no longer eat dairy or gluten. And can you say, “Yum?” It’s a nice, savory squash soup for a cold, fall evening.
Also, when I made the first recipe, I didn’t have an immersion blender, but now I do. Well, technically, DON has an immersion blender since I gave it to him for Christmas a couple years ago. But I use it. (Don’tcha just love giving Christmas presents that you can use?) So for the first recipe, I used my food processor with all the discs and doodads (or you could use your Vitamix blender). What a mess! So save yourself some trouble and put an immersion blender on your Christmas list! And if you don’t have a good garlic press, put that on your list, too.
Also, if you take a look at the previous recipe, you’ll see how far I’ve come in my photography and blogging skills. Holy cow! What a lousy picture. But the recipe is SO good. One of my friends recently posted it as her favorite Butternut Squash Soup (and I was so embarrassed by the photo—I really need to make it again and take a proper photo).
The first time we made this recipe—way back in 2010 (I can’t believe I’ve been doing this website for seven years!)—we paired the soup with a fresh (cooked) artichoke with butter and some bread from the European Market. Now, Don is the only one in our house who can eat bread and he’s working on dropping a few pounds before we set off for Costa Rica this month. Ahhh, warmth and relaxation. We are so looking forward to it.
