Favorite Ingredients Friday (Soup Edition)

Good Friday to you all! It's time for a special Favorite Ingredients Friday Soup Edition! I'm hosting a soup exchange in about 2 weeks and I can't wait to get some soup recipes to introduce to my friends that will be attending!

My contribition comes from Better Homes and Gardens. This is a delicious soup that Snuggle Bug will eat willingly! If you try it, I hope you enjoy it.

Winter Squash Bisque


• 6 medium acorn squash
• 3 14-ounce cans chicken broth
• 3/4 teaspoons ground ginger
• 3/4 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 teaspoon pepper
• 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 1-1/2 cups half-and-half or light cream
• 3/4 cup sour cream (optional)
• Fresh thyme sprigs (optional)


1. Halve squash and remove seeds. Place squash halves, cut sides down, on a baking dish. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 30 minutes. Turn cut sides up. Bake, covered, 20 to 25 minutes or until squash is tender.

2. Scoop squash pulp out of the peel using a spoon; discard peel. Place pulp in batches in a blender container or food processor bowl. Cover and blend or process until squash is smooth, adding some of the chicken broth if the mixture is too thick.

3. Stir together pureed squash and remaining chicken broth in a large saucepan. Stir in ginger, salt, pepper, and cinnamon. Bring mixture to boiling. Reduce heat and stir in half-and-half or light cream. Heat through, but do not boil. If desired, garnish each serving with sour cream and thyme sprigs. Makes 12 side-dish servings.
