(WTNH)– Culinary Arts Teacher Joanna Siciliano and student Emma Velez from Haddam-Killingworth Highschool show us how to make roasted butternut squash soup.
This is a wonderful recipe you can make for Thanksgiving. It’s super healthy using all seasonal vegetables and it’s quick and simple.
The flavors of fall are best centered around the produce that is in season right now. Vibrant, sweet-and-savory squashes and pumpkins, paired with crispy sweet apples, work well in hearty dishes seasoned with warmer spices like nutmeg, cinnamon, and all spice. Warm up on a crisp autumn day with this delicious and very easy to make soup.
