VeganMoFo – Delicata Squash Bisque


This morning I overslept and had 3 hours to do house stuff before being gone all day. So I didn’t really feel like doing house stuff and decided to cook – something, anything. Since I was going to see my mom, I decided I should make something for her dinner. It’s not soup weather here, but I’ve been drawn to Vegan YumYum’s Delicata Squash Bisque ever since she posted it. And then I saw Awesome.Vegan.Rad rave about it.

I had only one small delicata, so I used it along with a small butternut squash. Like I said, I had no business trying to make a proper bisque, much less get a proper photograph of it. I didn’t get to make it as smooth as I wanted to, or make a fancy squiggle garnish either. But let me tell you, this bisque is heavenly. I just had a small bowl for dinner. It’s simply flavored, very filling, and has a lovely spice from just black pepper. I’m so used to heat from chili peppers and this was a nice reminder that spice can come from something other than hot peppers. Don’t let my photo deter you. Put this on your *must make* list.

I never know how to feel about squash recipes. I like squash but I don't love love love it so I want to eat more of it. Ok you've convinced me that I should maybe try this recipe.
