Butternut Squash Soups

Sweet and savory, butternut squash soup is like the dessert of the soup world. There’s a reason it’s a fall favorite: Butternut squash is at its prime from early fall through winter. For a smooth, creamy texture, puree the squash. Add onions, ginger, and garlic and you’ll have a butternut squash soup that’s good to the last drop.

recipe

Each kind of squash has its own distinct flavor. But because the butternut is all its name promises -- buttery and nutty sweet -- it is perfect for making soup. It is the sweetness of the squash combined with the spicy heat of the chile that makes this soup so unusual and delicious.

recipe

Hearty soup with butternut and beans will warm kids up on a chilly fall day; leaf-shape toast makes cute "crackers" If you prefer, substitute chicken broth for the beef broth. For even more flavor, sprinkle each bowl with grated Parmesan cheese before serving.

recipe

This traditional Proven;al dish gets much of its flavor from the vegetables, which can be as varied as you please. Covering the pistou with a layer of olive oil and refrigerating until just before serving prevents discoloration.
