I’ve never been a fan of squash (I’m not sure exactly what it tastes like, but I’ve never found it enjoyable, however it’s been disguised) but I had high hopes for this soup. I thought the combination of curry and honey would help me choke it down.
Now, I recognize that I had the same high hopes for the squash mac ‘n cheese that Ellie gave us a few weeks ago, and I was sadly disappointed, but I’m trying to eat more vegetables of different colors, and so I tried the soup.
Meet me in the Kitchen made this week’s selection, and you can find the recipe at her blog. Some of the comments suggested that the curry made the soup too spicy or that the honey made it too sweet, but I don’t necessarily agree with either reaction.
I added apple chicken sausage and oyster crackers to disguise the stuff, and still it was squash soup. I liked it, but I’ll never crave it. I might make it again when I am swept by a wave of health consciousness, but I’m not gonna hold my breath for that day to come.
It looked nice in the bowl, though, don’t you think? And the Other Eater in my Household enjoyed it very much.
I think next week may be the final test for Ellie’s book. None of the recipes have really bowled me over so far, and I’m beginning to lose interest in the book. We’ll see how the cookies recipes stand up.
One thought on “CEiMB: Curried Squash Soup”
I agree that the last several recipes haven’t done anything for me either. My husband is losing interest in Ellie as well. The past several weeks he has had some pretty harsh things to say about her. Hope that you stick with it?!
