Two fabulous possibilities with one simple and delicious recipe–now with an oil-free option! Velvety smooth butternut bisque or hearty chowder. Serve fresh or freeze for a rainy day. This vegan recipe offers two options that are so diverse you have to see them or taste them to believe it!
It was quite an adjustment to return from a warm, sun-kissed beach vacation to the cold and rainy days we are having in Virginia right now. I am so happy that I developed this recipe before vacation and had it waiting for me upon my return. Even as my suitcases remained unpacked, I whipped up this soup.
Plant-based Butternut Bisque
I can’t think of a better way to warm up body and soul than this bisque (or chowder). Soak, chop, saute, simmer and blend (for the bisque option). To see a picture of the easiest way to chop a butternut squash check out my post for Zesty Buckwheat Burgers. This hearty soup yields a generous amount (eight – 8 cup servings) that you can enjoy for days.
Butternut Squash Chowder
If a hearty chowder is what you’re flavin’ for then serve up this deliciousness. This Butternut Squash Chowder will hit the spot.
If you are looking for the comfort of a velvety smooth bisque then you’re just two more steps away!
Serve as a starter to a meal or as the main dish itself. Pair this vegan Butternut Bisque with my Rosmarino Vegan Flatbread (gluten-free) and a salad like my Plant Protein Power Salad or my Sweety Drop Pepper Cucumber Salad. Now that is a meal! If you are looking for another option to warm you up, you may want to check out my Creamy Quinoa Leek Bisque for a scrumptious comfort soup!
