Tunisian Spiced Squash Soup

Yield:
6-8 servings


Butternut squash, pumpkin, butternut squash, pumpkin…after awhile, all that squash and pumpkin kind of looks and tastes the same. Which is why I came up with this slight variation on a classic butternut squash soup: same roasted butternut squash, but with a Middle Eastern twist.

And I must give credit where it is due. While I am pretty picky about my cookbooks, especially kosher cookbooks, I do love Saffron Shores which inspired this soup recipe.

The key to making this soup is roasting the butternut squash with the harissa on top to really add depth of flavor. What is harissa? It’s a Middle Eastern spice blend traditionally made with dried chilis, coriander and cumin.  I added some fresh lemon juice and zest to add brightness.

If you make the soup pareve for a dairy meal, I highly suggest serving it with some thick Greek yogurt or labne, fresh pita chips and a drizzle of olive oil.

Happy cooking!

Sweet ‘n Spicy Sweet Potato Soup

Yield:

This is one of my favorite recipes to make and to share with others. Every time I make this soup people ask for the recipe and simply cannot believe it’s nondairy – its so rich and creamy. It’s also pretty easy to make.

Of course you can make it dairy and serve it with creme fraiche although I enjoy topping it with a drizzle of pomegranate molasses and a sprinkle of pepitas for crunch. This is such a  great soup to sip in the Sukkah or on any cool day.
