I’ve only attempted homemade soup once, and since all I had to do was throw a bunch of veggies into a pot, I don’t think it counts. On Sunday, instead of sitting in front of the TV with our laptops glued to our knees, my fiancé and I decided to attempt our first homemade soup: butternut squash. I have to admit, I’m pretty impressed with us. The result was rich, creamy and flavorful! You can view the recipe here, but I’ll share a few tips too:
1. My mom says ignore the blending part of the directions. Instead, microwave the squash until it’s mushy before adding it to the soup so it thickens more quickly.
2. We added one garlic clove
3. Even though it’s not in the recipe, the Hungarian in me went overboard with paprika. If you like the spice as much as I do, go all in!
