I made this for a gathering tonight, replacing the butternut with red kuri squash, the potato with white sweet potato, using a pear only, and half & half. Fabulous! Everyone RAVED!!
Delicious soup, I don't generally like pureed soups but I had this lovely butternut that was aging and this seemed a worthy end for it. I didn't have any pears so this got a Spartan apple that gave excellent results. Mace was used in the soup and as a garnish sprinkle on top. I made this yesterday and enjoyed it hot and I would recommend it highly but at the time I thought it would be very nice chilled for summer as well. As I was going to reheat the leftovers for lunch (and the photo I didn't get last night) I decided to try it cold and the photo is the soup right out of the fridge with a fresh topping of mace, YUM both ways. This really took less time than I had thought it would and the roasted veggies took 14 mins, I might have cut mine a bit large, to fully roast. It was whizzed in the food pro and yielded a simply grand flavored soup.
I added 1 apple to this!
I really enjoyed the nutmeg in this! The sweetness of the pear combined with the richness of the roasted vegetables was the perfect combination. I used half and half instead of cream. I topped mine with croutons made from olive oil and garlic ciabata bread. Thanks for sharing!
Made this for company we had the other day & it was a hit! Used up what was left of my homemade vegetable broth, included both the pear & an apple & topped it with croutons made from a hearty winter wheat bread ~ Very satisfying!
