Fresh Recipe: Acorn Squash and Sweet Potato Soup

acorn squashThis week for Fresh Tip Tuesday I tackled my bag from Farm Fresh Carolina and decided it was a SOUP DAY using acorn squash! Also, my mini was sick, so she needed some liquid gold to help lift her spirits.  LOL

Ginger contains gingerol, a substance with medicinal properties and pairs will with acorn squash as well as sweet potatoes so it had to be included. I prefer using ginger paste, or fresh grated, but dried will work for the recipe as well.  If you do not have a Tupperware’s Pressure Cooker, you could use an InstaPot or the traditional method of roasting, blending, then simmering on the stove, just know it will take 3 times longer.

Try it out, and let me know what you think!

 

Acorn Squash and Sweet Potato Soup

1 acorn squash
2 medium sweet potatoes
1/4 cup onion, chopped
2-3 cups vegetable broth
1 tsp ginger, I prefer FRESH
1 tsp fresh thyme
1 (14 oz) can coconut milk, lite
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
salt and pepper

Directions:

  1. Peel and cut squash and sweet potatoes into 1-inch chunks.
  2. Place squash, sweet potatoes, onion, spices and broth to cover in Tupperware Microwave Pressure Cooker.  Cook for 16 mins on high. (test to be sure squash is soft after pressure releases.)
  3. Scoop into thePowerChef System and process until smooth.  Add back to the pressure cooker and combine with coconut milk. Stir, season with salt, pepper and cayenne.
  4. Serve with artisan croutons.

ENJOY!!!!

Fresh Recipe: Creamy Potato Soup

As the days start to get colder, my cravings for soup and stews increase.  So for today’s Fresh Tip Tuesday we made Creamy Potato Soup.  It takes less than 30 mins for this rich and flavorful soup that takes my love of baked potatoes to the next level.  Of course I shared some fun fresh tips: like how potatoes were the first vegetable grown in space, or how they should be stored at 39 degrees or higher. 🙂
