Best Butternut Pear Soup
Pears are dear to my heart, having worked closely with Harry & David over the years, but also having enjoyed the beauty of their orchards and fresh produce in hometown, where I lived for 52 years!
I was spoiled, I know. So this BEST Butternut Pear Soup Recipe is a yummy recipe for fall! My friend, Lori, makes a mean Pear and Fennel Soup that is good, too!
Butternut Pear Soup
Today I’m sharing a very easy, butternut squash soup recipe. I’ve made several batches of this soup, because guess what? It doesn’t last long in my house. It’s devoured almost as quickly as I make it.
Next week I’m hosting a ladies dinner party, and this soup is on the menu! The gram masala is a great addition, and of course the fresh thyme really adds to the flavor.
Ingredients for Butternut Pear Soup
All you need is onion, butternut squash, pears, cream, stock, and then spices and herbs.
Saute the onions, butternut squash, and pears.
Add the rest of ingredients, puree and serve.
Serve with a tiny bit of creme fraiche & fresh thyme!
How to bake butternut squash
Using precooked butternut squash, this recipe takes about 25 minutes to whip up!
Or, if using raw butternut, bake at 400 degrees and cook for about 20 minutes.
Or, stovetop: Cook with 1/2 cup water, salt and pepper, 2 T. honey until tender (with a fork).
Easy fall hosting! Invite your friends over for soup, salad, bread, and a simple fall dessert!
