I made the Alton Brown Squash Soup last night. I had squash and I really wanted some soup so you can see where that went…
I ran out of chicken stock after 2 cups and I needed 3, so I fished some dashi stock I made a little while back out of the freezer and stuck that in. I don’t think I taste any odd flavors because of it. I thought it tasted really superb until I put in the nutmeg. Now maybe I just don’t like nutmeg, I don’t know, but where it was great before, I think it’s merely good now. Oh, I also didn’t have cream, or an immersion blender. So I used my potato masher and and mix and masher to creamy it up a bit. In place of the cream I ended up using plain yogurt. I probably should have just used milk, but frankly I like the tang of yogurt and like I said it was great, until the nutmeg. I think I’ll skip it next time. and maybe add some roasted carrots.
Also… I wish I would have used brown sugar instead of honey.
