Chipotle Butternut Squash Soup

This recipe will warm you and your family, heart and soul.  The chipotle peppers impart a slightly sweet and smoky flavor that adds interest and dimension without being overwhelming. Together with some of the adobo sauce, in which they come packed, they will add a little fire and kick, too.  You can decide how much.  Garnish each serving with a generous sprinkle of roasted pumpkin seeds (‘pepitas’ in Mexico) to add some crunch.  And if you want to impress, drizzle a swirl of cream and a fresh cilantro.  You’ll dazzle their taste-buds; you don’t have to tell them it’s a superfood of antioxidants, when they ask for more.  It’s a great starter or pair with a salad of fresh greens, avocado, craisins in an olive oil/blue cheese vinaigrette and some crusty whole grain bread for a perfect meal.

A book of verse beneath the bough,
A loaf of bread, a jug of wine, and thou
Beside me singing in the Wilderness –
Ah, wilderness were paradise enow!
