Just in Time for Fall: Harvest Bisque Recipe

Not sure what to bring to your next potluck? Look no further! Today’s featured recipe from the JLS “Simply Classic” cookbook is just what you need to get ready for fall. 

Harvest Bisque (serves six)

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound butternut squash
  • 5 cups chicken stock
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • ¾ cup half and half
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon white pepper

Garnish:

  • 1 lime, sliced paper-thin

Steps:

  • Peel, seed, and cut squash into 1-inch cubes. Place in a heavy, 4-quart pot with chicken stock. Cook over medium heat until tender, about 15 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer squash to a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Stir stock into squash purée. Set aside
  • In same pot, melt butter; stir in flour and curry. Cook, stirring, over medium heat until smooth. Add pureed squash mixture to pot. Increase heat to medium-high and stir until soup thickens slightly. Reduce heat and add half and half. Do not allow soup to boil after this point. Add lime juice, salt and white pepper. Ladle soup into serving bowls, garnish with lime and serve immediately.
