Winter is definitely starting to make itself known here on the prairies. Over the past few days, it’s been snowing on and off and it has been quite blustery. So, on Friday, Jesse and I decided to forgo our usual date night out and cuddle up and stay warm at home. We made this delicious soup together and proceeded to have a Breaking Bad marathon. We are a little late to the game – but we powered through seasons one and two this week. So good! I cannot wait to get through the remaining four seasons!
Now, more about the pumpkin bisque. It’s a stick-to-your-bones kind of soup. Very hearty and heartwarming. The white bean purée ups both the creaminess and the protein content of the soup. This healthy bisque has a nice subtle pumpkin flavour elevated by the spices, garlic and onions. The apple cider vinegar cuts the richness of the soup well. The bonus – this bisque is very easy to put together and it tastes even better the next day as leftovers. This would be great as a starter soup for an upcoming holiday dinner. Add a swirl of crème fraîche and a few garlic rosemary croutons and you’ve got one delicious meal for a chilly fall evening.
