My stepmom got me a Food Network calendar for Christmas that has a different recipe or tip every day of the year. It was truly an awesome and thoughtful gift! One of the first recipes in the calendar was for Butternut Squash Soup. My husband said it looked good so I thought why not.
This wasn’t something I’d normally make so I was kindof out of my element but since my husband got me a Kitchen Aid Immersion Blender for Christmas, I figured it was time to break it in. Overall this recipe was pretty good (my husband really liked it), but it’s definitely not something I could eat a second bowl of right away. It’s hard to explain. It’s powerful and potent.
I made a quick version of creme fraiche since I didn’t want to wait 24 hours to eat the soup (yeah.. learn to read the directions ahead of time.. I know), but as you can tell, it didn’t turn out and fell to the bottom of the soup. So definitely don’t use a quick homemade creme fraiche with this (unless you have it on hand) or just omit it completely.
