Homey little scene right?
A friend came over because we had talked up our delicious curry butternut squash and pea soup so much, she wanted to try it!
Here's the general recipe we use--
Do everything in one pot (we use an enameled Dutch oven):
Sautee chopped carrots, onion, and mushrooms in a little olive oil
Put in a peeled, cubed butternut squash and about a quart of stock (however much to cover it)
Add spices: garlic, black pepper, curry, ginger, cardamom (we're pretty heavy handed!)
Bring it to a boil, then simmer till the squash is super tender
Use an immersion hand blender to purée the soup nice and creamy!
Add a bag of frozen peas
Taste and re-spice if needed!
Let simmer till the peas are cooked ..
And you've got yourself a great soup!!
I'm loving eating my meals at my new table. It's round, not oval like our old one, takes up less space and is adorably cozy.
I don't know why I'm so happy about this table!! Maybe it brings a little of my awesome, adorable, funny grandma's energy to the kitchen :)
Have a great day - I will try to! I'm tired, in general, from working extra and a lot of other life stuff (MORE house renovations, academic stuff, etc) so I'm trying to actively keep a positive mood (hard for me!).
