This week Skip made 3 soups. Two of them feature carrots. The soup that was rejected was Roasted Winter Vegetable Soup from the website, Happy Healthnut. For the record, Skip really enjoyed this soup. It made a lot, so it was a shame that she had to eat the whole pot herself due to her companions protest. The recipe starts out with roasting carrots, sweet potatoes, onions and garlic in the oven.
The soup that my companion liked this week was, Orange Ginger Squash Soup, brought to us by the blog, A Calculated Whisk. This soup was a little bitter, but that could have been the acorn squash, sometimes they are a little bitter. The orange and the ginger paired nicely with the squash. This was a very silky soup and definitely gave you a warm, fuzzy feeling while you ate it. This was again a soup that required "passive cooking". I roasted the acorn squash in the oven, which is nice because you can just put it in and walk away and do your other business, like fold laundry or binge watch your favorite TV program. Once the squash is roasted and cooled, the immersion blender gets busy again and them boom!
