Great flavor combination–Sounds delicious! I made this great Moroccan-style stuffed acorn squash over the weekend.
Thanks so much, Michael. Wow your Moroccan Acorn Squash looks amazing; I’m going to surely have to try that. Thank you, again; have a great night. Best, Amie
MMMM some of my FAVORITE soup ingredients! Looks nice and hearty. But why strain it?
Thanks so much for your comment, I usually strain it to get rid of the excess that may be clumpy in your soup to ensure a smooth consistency, however, it’s not a mandatory step and can easily be skipped if you don’t mind a bit of pulp/chunk in your soup. Thank you again for your comment….I hope you enjoy this tasty soup!
Yum! That looks so thick and filling for a cold day!
I love making soups like that. I love the interplay of savory and sweet. Using yogurt in a soup is new to me though. I’ll have to try that sometime.
