I was in search of a recipe for Roasted Butternut Squash Soup the other day…
Normally, I’m not a huge squash fan but I was in the mood for something different and my neighbor gave me a Butternut Squash that I wanted to use.
In my online search, I discovered this wonderful food blog called, “Cookie and Kate,” Kate (Kathryne Taylor) cooks vegetarian meals while her dog, Cookie cleans up the crumbs! 🙂
I made the Roasted Butternut Squash soup last night – just love that gorgeous orange color, don’t you?
The soup was a bit bland for my taste so I added thyme, black pepper and Tabasco Sauce. I tend to cook like I create… I rarely follow the recipe! 😉
While the Butternut squash was roasting in the oven, I tempted to watercolor the salad, a recipe I also found at CookieandKate.com
I LOVE the Fall flavors in the salad – BTW, I didn’t even taste the kale but you could substitute spinach.
You can find the recipe as Kale, Apple and Goat Cheese Salad with Granola Croutons.
I will be serving this salad for Thanksgiving dinner. I like that I can limit the portion sizes to one or two servings or more – depending on how many people will be coming.
Hubby especially liked the Granola Croutons with oats, pecans, pumpkin and sunflower seeds:
I liked the easy Lemony Maple Mustand Salad Dressing too!
I enjoy trying new foods and recipes. Kate has written a cookbook with colorful photos, called, “Love Real Food,” I love cookbooks so I had to purchase it! 🙂
I eat at least one vegetarian meal each week, how about you?
If you give one of her recipes a try, I hope you share it with me!
