Vegan MoFo Day 20: Acorn Squash and Pear Soup with Sauteed Shiitakes

with 3 comments


Man, I’ve been cooking up a storm (MoFo has inspired me!), so most of this soup is now hanging out in the freezer! This is from Veganomicon, and I’ve made it before, a year or two ago. It is delicious. I used bosc pears instead of whatever they asked for, because I like them best, and didn’t peel them. I’ve been trying to eat more soups recently, as I’m trying to lose a bit of a spare tire I’ve developed, and soups deliver quite the nutritional and taste bang for your caloric buck!
Below are the lovely squashes I used, unfortunately from the supermarket and not the Farmer’s Market. Wherever I buy winter squashes, they always look kind of forlorn, like they know they might sit there awhile because of their lengthy shelf life. But so pretty, too! Forlorn and pretty, a very romantic combo.
