It’s fall, y’all! Nothing says cooler temperatures like a bowl of delicious and comforting bisque (French for “rich and creamy soup”). Butternut Squash and Apple Bisque is the easiest soup to make, but don’t let that fool you. It’s delicious and full of flavor, too.
Butternut squash and apple compliment one another perfectly. The sweetness of the apple highlights the sweetness of the squash while the sage and shallot really bring out the squash’s savory side. The addition of warm spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice make it the consummate soup for fall.
Tailgating this season? This soup is a splendid way to impress your guests. Make the soup the day before, or early in the morning for a night game, reheat in a crock pot and serve in demitasse cups with roasted pumpkin seeds, or pepitas, on top. There’s no better way to spend a chilly afternoon outside Tiger Stadium with friends.
This soup easily transforms into a vegetarian or vegan dish with the substitution of vegetable stock and the elimination of the half and half. Now you really can please everyone.
