Pumpkin spice gets all the love, but fall is soup season, too.
There’s nothing better than cozying up to a warm bowl of rich goodness when the temperature goes down, and this recipe for a butternut squash and apple bisque is so satisfying, you’re going to want to make it every day until spring—and maybe then some.
The deliciousness comes courtesy of Christian Ojeda, the newly-appointed executive chef at Bernardus Lodge & Spa in Carmel Valley, CA. Guests can’t get enough of this stuff, and now you can recreate its magical flavor any time you want.
"This is an ideal dish for any seasonal event," Ojeda says. "The butternut squash is a perfect foil for the Gala apples, which add a nice bite. It can be a meal in itself served with a nice crusty bread or starter for any holiday occasion."
This recipe makes about four to six servings, but you can double the recipe if you want to stock up on incredible soup for a big family celebration. It does require some blending, so be careful if you’re doing so in batches.
Now, get out there and get wowed by this seasonal fall flavor!
