How to Make Acorn Squash Soup in Minutes
The recipe for the acorn squash soup we shared in the last recipe is so easy that I didn’t even know how to prepare it.
It’s just what you think it is.
I like to start with the broth and then add vegetables and spices.
But if you’re a more adventurous person like myself, you can add in a bit of garlic, onion, parsley and parsley-garlic powder and use it in place of the thyme and rosemary.
The soup is perfect for a chilly winter dinner or for a potluck dinner to share with friends.
For this recipe, I used the soup base for the soup.
The broth I used is a mild broth that can be made from canned tomatoes, red bell pepper, and garlic.
The tomato sauce is sweet and slightly salty.
The sauce is a blend of black beans, rice, and a mix of corn, rice vinegar, soy sauce, and lemon juice.
For the pasta, I cooked the pasta in olive oil and then topped it with a little lemon juice and a few parsley sprigs.
I served it with rice and a green salad to round out the meal.
I hope you enjoy this simple soup as much as I do.
