I used this recipe to pop up my squash puree.
I roasted the vegetables (expect rutabag that I did not have), added spices and herbs (saved some for decorationI) and I incorporated this to the squash puree. Adding some water a decorated with the reserved vegetables.
This was delicious, filling, tasty and with a great texture. Helps to save calories!
Thanks for this recipe.
This was a satisfying soup, very filling. It was a little bland, next time I would use vegetable or chicken broth instead of water. It's a bonus that it's so beautiful to look at.
I really wanted to love this recipe, I mean, look at the photo- its a gorgeous dish! However, there was an overall sweet flavor to the stew that needed something to balance it out. I used a Walla Walla Sweet onion, which probably didn't help out the already sweet squash, rutabaga, and peppers. The flavors melded a little more in the fridge overnight, but it still tasted like it needs something. I added some fresh torn basil to a serving I heated up for lunch and that was good, but not quite it. Maybe curry? But that just might make it a whole different recipe.
