Full of Fall flavors, this rich soup has a creamy texture even if you don’t add any cream or non-diary milk! Fresh chestnuts make an appearance in the Fall and early Winter, the perfect time to make some Chestnut Puree. Once you’ve made the puree, use it to make this as a starter for your Thanksgiving meal, or create this delicious autumnal soup for a cold night to pair with a soup or sandwich!
Squash blossoms are one of the most beautiful signs of the promise of summer gardens. In late spring the vines put on a show of glorious big yellow flowers, but only the females will produce the fruit later on in the season. The male flowers are fair game then, for plucking and stuffing and enjoying for all their flavor and texture.
