As has been my routine every year in April we wait for Spring recipes, I jump back one more time into the Winter recipes and post just one last comforting soup. Chicago is a tough land to live in. Winter almost seems never ending and Summer comes and goes on a flash. I am getting ready to think about the Garden though. I stopped by a nursery today to peek through what goodies they are planning to bring in for the Spring. And without intention, managed to get yet another houseplant and couple of Herb pots. I decided to use the Fresh Thyme from newly acquired herb plant. Hope you love this recipe as much as I did.
I am in a Christmas Coma. There has been an overdose of cookies and cakes all around me. This easy soup has served as a refresher and pallet changer for the last few weeks. I have another recipe for Green Peas Soup in the blog archive. This is another take on it. I added different herbs and added Chili Oil for the kick. I also used Almond Milk instead of cream so all in all this makes a healthier version. As with almost all my soups, this is a mild soup and goes well with simple salads or a cheese course.
This easy Butternut Squash Soup recipe was born when we were hit by a snow storm this week. It turned out so good, I made it in Instapot as well later so you have both ways of making it.
The snowstorm was so bad that several of us had no electricity and no water for more than a day. Here is a small video of what the storm looked like. for those who have never seen a snow storm, this will be enjoyable perhaps.
