This vegetarian braise combines mellow fall colors and flavors punctuated with brilliant cranberries and dark walnuts. Sweet and savory apple and pumpkin are pulled together with fresh cider. Serve with a hearty whole-grain bread and wine or apple cider.
This hearty soup makes a great fall meal, served with a salad and some warm crusty bread (we usually have a whole wheat baguette), or use it as a first course. It is derived from a Pumpkin Soup recipe I found several years ago in The Wine Spectator. For a dressy presentation garnish with a bit of Creme Fraiche and some julienned prosciutto. I've made this recipe using brown sugar and also substituting Spenda and my family has not noticed a difference. I have also substituted low fat evaporated milk for the heavy cream with no issues in the final result. This soup can be prepared up to 24 hours before serving. re-heat over very low heat prior to serving.
The peanut butter gives this recipe a lovely flavour. It is easy to prepare and it's quicker to cook than ordering take away. You can use frozen beans or peas. Just make sure that the beans or peas are thawed and drained of any liquid. Actually, the basis of this curry can be used for most vegetables. Just let your head go when making it.
This risotto cooks up rich and creamy, nicely spiced, makes for a great side dish. Takes some time and lots of attention, but is worth the wait! This recipe was created for the Ready, Set, Cook! contest.
Quick, easy and a wonderful and tasty addition to your Thanksgiving dinner. Paint streaks of sour cream or swirl a teaspoon of heavy cream carefully on the surface. Top with chopped chives or a sprinkling of toasted pumpkin seeds for that extra special touch.
This soup is honestly to DIE for!! Infact, I can't wait to make it again!!! And soon!! I became quite excited about it while I was typing the recipe out!!! LOL!! The nutmeg added really makes it! If making this soup in advance, leave the egg yolks and cream out until close to serving time. If freezing the soup, leave the egg yolks and cream out until thawed and heated.
This is my personal rendition on a favorite from Quebec. The addition of pumpkin to ordinary mashed potatoes gives them an nice earthiness that goes well with roasted poultry or other autumnal fare. I have not tried it with canned pumpkin but will experiment eventually. Though I don't cook much with butter, you should feel free to add some more to suit your taste.
When I create a dish that I'm proud of, I put my name on it. I just made this up for supper tonight, as part of yet another diet. Yummy! I made it a little spicer than the rest of the family would like, so I get to eat it all myself!
This is a Matthew Ford recipe from the Guardian's weekend magazine. Using barley makes a nice change from rice and it's good for you as well. If you want you can also add sautéed mushrooms or shredded meat. I often use butternut squash instead of pumpkin as it's more widely available here.
