Theme for my soup: Orange (there is no orange in it though).


I often cook a soup on winter Sunday night, and it is usually based on what’s available… Also, I convince myself it washes down the excesses of the WE. The theme was orange, because we needed something to cheer us up: We just had this terrible snow storm. Here are my ingredients: 3 carrots, 1/2 butternut squash previously cooked, 1 cup of roasted chestnuts (best way to peel chestnuts here) 6 garlic cloves, 1/2 cup of corral lentils. Olive oil and 2 star anises.

Step one: In your pot, brown the carrots + garlic in olive oil.

ImageStep 2: add 3 cups of broth, your squash, the peeled chestnuts and the lentils:


Step 3: let simmering for 20 to 40 minutes with 2 anise stars. It really enhance the flavors.


Blend, adjust the salt, et voilà! my suggestion, a drizzle of olive oil, and a little cracked pepper to warm you up from the inside. Bon appétit 😉
