Butternut Squash Bisque Slow Cooked in Clay

Butternut Squash Bisque Slow Cooked in Clay

I love fall! The air is crisp and clean, the leaves change colors, the rains come (in California) and I just start feeling festive. Fireplaces become cozy places of warmth once again and soup is once again on the regular! I love fall produce; many people love summer for its produce: berries, fruits, veggies in abundance. But in my opinion fall has the best produce.

Pomegranates! Pumpkins! Corn! Sweet Potatoes! Winter Squashes! I planted a couple of butternut squash seeds a few months ago and Oh.My.Goodness! The butternut squash vines have overtaken my garden!

TheyÔÇÖre all over the place with their huge leaves that you lift up to find not one,not two, but like 8 huge butternut squashes! The vines grew into the pathways, through and in other trees and bushes (IÔÇÖve got some rose bushes, midget lemon treesÔÇŽ) So, naturally, I had to find a great recipe for butternut squash soup to make in my VitaClay - because butternut squash soup rocks. Butternut squash soup is deeply nourishing, filled with lots of bio-available nutrients especially when combined with a hearty bone broth. And it tastes great too! So what are you waiting for, come on over to grab a butternut squash and get cooking!
