It’s Friday again, and today for MoFo Orange week I’m having Dad’s famous Holiday Butternut Squash Soup.
This delicious pureed soup is a staple in our family at holiday times. Dad makes it by combining a base of sauteed carrots, garlic, onions, and celery with diced butternut squash, vegetable broth, plenty of black pepper and a dash or two of cayenne, then simmering it until the squash is soft enough to puree with an immersion blender. It really is as simple as can be, but has such a delicious result! Sweet and also savory, lightly spicy, thick and filling.
Today I’m eating mine with leftover challah, trying to fill up before beginning my Yom Kippur fast this evening.
Have a great weekend!
