 Squash Soup with Thyme



1½  tbsp butter
½    onion, sliced
2 cloves  garlic
½ tsp  thyme
½  squash  peeled, seeded, and cut into 1-inch cubes
4 cups  chicken stock
½  cube  chicken bouillon
1 pinch  ground cumin
salt and ground black pepper to taste

 

Directions:

  1. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat; cook the onion, garlic, and thyme in the hot butter until the onion has softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the squash and chicken stock; bring to a simmer and cook until the squash is tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Crumble the bouillon into the soup; season with cumin, salt, and pepper; remove from heat.
  4. Pour the soup into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway. Hold the lid of the blender in place with a kitchen towel and carefully start the blender using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree in batches until smooth and pour into a serving bowl. Alternately, you can use a stick blender and puree the soup in the pot.

2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice or 1 tsp. ginger, 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp cloves
1 teaspoon salt
1 box yellow cake mix

  3. Sprinkle dry cake mix evenly over the pumpkin mixture and use your hands to gently press it into the batter.
  4. Sprinkle the top of the cake with chopped pecans and evenly drizzle the melted butter over the entire cake.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes. At this point check your cake. If the top is becoming too brown, cover the cake with a piece of foil for the remaining baking time. Continue baking and additional 10-20 minutes or until set.

Autumn Carrot and Sweet Potato Soup


 

Servings: 8
Total Time: 45 Minutes

 

Ingredients

4 tbsp unsalted butter

2 medium yellow onions, chopped

1 tbsp curry powder, plus a bit more for serving

1 lb carrots, peeled and chopped into 1-inch pieces

1½ lbs. sweet potatoes (about 2 small), peeled and chopped into 1-inch pieces

8 c. chicken broth, best quality such as Swanson

1-3/4 tsp salt

1 tart yet sweet apple (such as Honeycrisp or Fuji), peeled and chopped

2 tbsp honey

Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring frequently, until soft and translucent, about 10 minutes. Do not brown. Add the curry powder and cook a minute more.
  2. Add the carrots, sweet potatoes, chicken broth and salt and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over low heat until vegetables are very tender, about 25 minutes. Stir in the apples and honey.
  3. Using a stick blender, puree the soup until smooth and creamy. (Alternatively, cool the soup slightly, then puree in a blender in batches. Be sure to leave the hole in the lid open, and cover with a kitchen towel, to allow the steam to escape.)
  4. Season to taste with salt, pepper and more honey if necessary.
  5. Ladle soup into bowls and sprinkle with more curry powder if desired. (Note: As the soup sits, it will thicken up so you may need to add a bit of water to thin it out.)
