|My delicious Spiced Squash, Fennel, and Pear Soup|
As I've mentioned before, my husband is not a very adventurous eater. That's probably an understatement! However, every once in awhile he surprises me by eating something I thought for sure he would scowl at e.g. Dories Stuffed Pumpkin. What a surprise that was! Despite the surprise, I truly thought he would enjoy this French Friday recipe. He has a fondness for pureed soups...he ate the stuffed pumpkin...he enjoys most fruit, including pears. So what was not to like? Who knows, but he didn't! I did! So, more for me! I had cooked down a pumpkin and pureed it last week. Therefore, I didn't have to cook the pumpkin (squash) today. This made the preparation much easier. The most difficult part of this soup was chopping all the veggies. I found this to be a lovely, flavorful soup. The added cream gave the soup a luscious, rich taste. This would be a delightful soup to serve for a holiday meal...just don't invite my husband!
This recipe can be found in Dorie Greenspans cookbook "Around My French Table". It has also been posted here.
