Ciocia's Thai Butternut Coconut Bisque

READY IN: 8hrs 20mins
Recipe by Ciocia Laura

A delicious soup i invented from leftovers and a few additions. It's very forgiving to feel free to use a squirt of lemon for lime juice, use a different herb, try ginger for lemongrass, etc. Also, i used small handfuls, etc. and have estimated some ingredients.

This was delicious! I bought already cubed and cleaned squash from Costco, roasted it one night and then used it for the soup when I had a chance to make it. I just sauteed up the shallots until translucent instead of leaving them in the slow cooker for an hour. Definitely a keeper! Made for PAC Spring '11
