Easy and Cozy Dinner for a Beautiful Fall Evening
Becca Bakes is back from a long summer break! In this edition of Becca Bakes, I will be sharing a recipe for a very delicious and easy fall soup that can be paired with biscuits. This recipe was passed down to me from my mother and grandmother and has been a staple in my house my entire life during the fall season. It is super easy to make and is perfect for a fall party or a cozy family dinner. Let me explain how it is made!
The soup is mainly a vegetable-based soup and can be made with any variety of vegetables that you prefer. For my recipe, I make it with my favorite fall vegetables which are green squash, butternut squash, red and yellow onions, carrots, celery, yellow squash, and broccoli. I cut the vegetables into one-inch chunks and place them on cookie sheets which are lined with parchment paper. After all the veggies are cut and placed on the cookie sheets, I coat them generously with extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, onion powder, and a very tiny sprinkle of nutmeg. I use my hands, that are washed and clean, to mix the veggies together with all of the oil and spices. To my oven that is preheated to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, I put the vegetables in and let them cook for about 30 minutes or until the veggies are soft and cooked through.
After the veggies are cooked thoroughly, I take them out of the oven and begin to prepare to make the soup. To prepare, I take out a large pot, a blender, chicken bone broth, and light cream. I begin making the soup by adding increments of vegetables and a splash of bone broth to the blender. I blend the veggies and broth until the soup is smooth and there are no chunks of veggies. I then pour the soup into my pot and set the heat to low to keep the soup warm as I blend the remaining veggies and broth. There are no exact measurements for this soup, therefore you can make as much or as little as you would like. After all the veggies have been blended and the soup is in the pot, I like to taste the soup and season to my preference as well as add a splash of light cream to make the soup creamier.
Ta da! The soup is done! This soup can be paired with biscuits or little sandwiches to make this a complete dinner. I love this recipe and how delicious and easy it is to make. In my house, my family calls this soup “Grampy’s Soup” since it was made by my great-grandfather, Grampy. I hope that this recipe gives you an easy dinner idea that really amplifies the amazing feelings of the fall season! Until next time, stay tuned for more from Becca Bakes!
