Amazon Bean Soup with Winter Squash & Greens

February/March 2006

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (48 votes)

Shaped like a flattened drum, buttercup squash most closely resembles the local squash used in this comforting hearty soup from northern Brazil. It has a dark green peel, a grayish turban-shaped top and dense orange flesh. Hubbard, butternut or delicata squashes could also be used. Instead of the lip-numbing Brazilian green jambu, we have used spinach. For a more festive look, serve in a roasted squash half (see Tip).

Awesome!

I made this for dinner tonight and the only things I changed were I substituted red kidney beans for the pinto and used butternut squash. It came out really great and tasted like I used a lot more spices than I actually did. The lime also really adds great flavor!

Good with Kabocha Squash

I used a 3 lb. Kabocha squash and it was delightful. I thought the lime was really necessary and really improved the flavor, but my husband liked it as was.

This soup is easy and delicious. We skipped the squash bowls but it would make a fun presentation. I added chopped fresh cilantro at the end along with the lime which gave it a little zip. I think this is best made the day before, which I did, since the flavors are not bold but blend nicely together. beans, greens and winter squash, how can you go wrong!

I made this tonight, and it was delicious. I used two kinds of winter squash and added chicken for some protein. We really enjoyed it. This will become one of our winter favorites, I am sure.
