a plate of this Pumpkin soup with potatoes and corn is a delicious and comforting soup to serve this fall. You can have this hearty soup on the table in less than 30 minutes.
I have wanted to recreate this butternut squash soup for years. Years ago, my husband and I went on a mission to Haiti with a group from our church.
You can read the posts on Mission: Haiti and Lessons from Haiti if you want to know more about what we have done and seen. For me it was a fantastic and eye-opening experience. It’s one thing to see poverty in pictures and on television, but experiencing it firsthand breaks your heart.
It was a great reminder to be even more grateful for the things and people God has put in my life. I also realized how much I can really do without and how much we waste on a daily basis.
One of our meals while in Haiti was a creamy butternut squash soup that I fell in love with. It was so absolutely delicious! How to lick-your-bowl-clean-delicious!!!
I have always regretted not asking the Haitian women’s missionary to write it to me. Eventually, after years of dreaming about soup, I decided to put it out of my memory and see what I came up with.
I added a little more sausage and bacon to the soup because I had it in the fridge and it seemed like the perfect addition to the butternut squash soup.
Then I went one step further and topped the pumpkin corn chowder with some goat cheese, pepitas, parsley and bacon. These little extra ingredients made the butternut squash soup recipe that much prettier. And even tastier.
This butternut squash corn chowder was so good. Our kids even ate it and said it was really good. You know a recipe sticks when the kids don’t complain about orange soup for dinner.
