Soupe Du Jour~

And an apology~

I saw this soup at Foodgawker I am almost certain~

I have made many different butternut squash soups.. w/ Pancetta toppings.. and Shrimp toppings and herbs and croûtons toppings..but I had never see as pretty a presentation in my the one I saw that I have tried to emulate~.. I have lost the link and I apologize~

But I thank the artist:)

It made me like this soup even more~

Fall is in the air.. and I crave soups in this weather~
I loved the addition of Turmeric..I had always put cinnamon and ginger..never turmeric..

the rest is basically the same..

Nice size butternut squash

3 potatoes

1 onion

butter or evoo to sauté the onion..

2 celery ribs..
chicken stock and milk..

salt and pepper I add maple syrup instead of sugar~

Just the way I usually make it..apart from her lovely green onion stem:)

With appreciation..


  1. I just purchased my first butternut squash of the season, so I'm DEFINITELY all over that recipe - yum!!

  10. Monique, it's never easy to eat a pretty bowl of soup, is it?

    But, I try.

  11. You're not kidding about fall being in the air. I feel like it hit us so suddenly, but I totally agree about soup. I'm weather sensitive for eating too.
