"A nice twist on the perennial autumn Butternut squash soup, there's a jockeying of tart, savory, hot and sweet with the squash, tomatoes, vinegar, garlic and chile. Smoky ham could go into the mix if you'd like, but I vote to keep this all about what you can do without meat."
Make the soup with squash or sweet potato. The spicy chile-garlic topping sets off the whole dish. Use it whenever you want a bright finish � in stews, on grilled dishes and with other soups.
1. In a 12-inch saut? pan, heat the oil over medium high. Stir in the onion, salt and pepper. Saut? until golden. Stir in garlic, half the chiles and the thyme. Cook 30 seconds. Blend in vinegar, scraping up the brown glaze from the bottom of the pan. Boil down the vinegar until none remains in the pan. Add the wine and boil it down until none remains.
2. Blend in tomatoes. Cook 2 minutes. Add squash and broth. Bring to a gentle simmer over medium low heat. Cover and cook 30 minutes, or until squash is tender. Taste for seasoning. Cool a little, then puree half the soup in a blender.
3. Pour puree back into the pan. Set aside up to an hour at room temperature, or refrigerate up to four days.
4. Blend together the topping's lime peel, juice, reserved chile, and garlic. Just before serving stir in the herb leaves. Reheat soup to bubbling. Taste again for seasoning. Sprinkle topping on each serving.
Oct 10 made with shrimp on the side, lemon zest, no herbs at end. very good and filling, but takes a long time to prepare. doesn't seem worth making ahead. would be fine without meat but probably good with ham too.
"Cooking this soup in a big saut� pan saves time and intensifies flavors. Browning the onion gives the bold foundation you need with sweet ingredients like squash.
This recipe is a good one to make ahead. It keeps in the refrigerator up to four days and can be frozen up to four months. Reheat as needed."
