Pear and Butternut Bisque

Pear and Butternut Bisque created by Parsley

I found this years ago in the local paper. It was adapted from a recipe by Elizabeth Riely. I like to add more cumin than called for.

ingredients

directions

  • Peel, seed and cube squash. (cut off a slice from top and bottom and stand squash on end to cut down the middle). Set aside.
  • In a large pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, carrot, garlic and ginger. Saute 5 minutes.
  • Put squash and remaining ingredients (except pepper and lemon juice) into pan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 20 minutes. The vegetables and pears should be very tender.
  • Let soup cool a bit and puree in batches in a food processor or blender. ( I find a blender gives a smoother puree). Pour soup into a clean pan.
  • Reheat over medium-low heat, unti very hot. Season with pepper and lemon juice.
  • Garnish with a dollop of plain nonfat yogurt and a small piece of rosemary.

    I used regular chicken broth and omitted the salt, I also used smoked paprika and did not use cumin. Other then that, I followed recipe as listed with very tasty results. DH grabbed the entire pot and brought it to camp with him, so that warrants a 5 star rating!! Thanks for sharing your recipe Mike.

    Think is FANTASTIC as is, TRUE! VERY healthy, LOVE the pear/butternut combination too! GREAT on a cold winter's night for me! Thank you for another wonderful recipe!

    I think the rosemary and paprika must have been "old". Lacked a little flavor. Had used dried rosemary. Try again with better herbs/spices. Otherwise VERY good.

    Excellent flavor and thick, smooth texture! I made this exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. I used my immersion blender to make pureeing easier. Thanx for a delicious, healthy soup that is perfect for fall and worthy of being part of a holiday dinner!
