A rainy day. Decided to try something different. One of my favourite is butternut squash. Found this recipe and decided to try it for the family. It turned out great, the texture was smooth and the aromas were amazing.
- 1 medium squash (diced)
- 1/2 yellow onion (diced)
- 1 granny smith, cored, peeled, and you guessed it, diced
- clove of garlic – chopped
- a few sprigs of thyme
- 1 cup of vegetable broth
- 1 tablespoon apple vinegar
- salt + pepper
Vacuum seal the apples, squash, thyme, onion and garlic. Heat up the immersion circulator (water bath) to 185F, and drop the package into the water and let it do it’s thing for 2 hours.
After 2 hours, open the bag, remove the thyme, place into a pot and add a cup of vegetable broth and a tablespoon of apple vinegar. Blend to a smooth puree. Serve hot! Finish with a drizzle of heavy cream (optional) chopped apples and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Salt and pepper to taste. Great for a cold winter meal!
