Winter Squash Bisque


This sunset-hued soup is smooth and heartwarming, perfect for cold winter days. The combination of spices places it somewhere in the Maghreb region of North Africa. It freezes really, really well, so it's perfect to make in advance. My husband, Ameir, also calls this "Taiyyaba's Butternut Squash Soup That'll Knock Your Socks Off." Fancy it up for a feast with a drizzle of cream on top!

What you will need

1 medium or small butternut squash, small-diced

3 carrots, diced (or enough to make equal parts with the squash)

1 onion, diced

1/2 - 1 teaspoons sugar

1-2 cloves garlic, minced or diced

1 can canellini beans, drained and rinsed

1 - 2 cans diced tomatoes

about 1 quart broth

1-2 teaspoons powdered cumin

1/2 - 1 teaspoons powdered coriander

1/2 teaspoon turmeric

1/4 - 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

salt, to taste

black pepper, to taste
