Roasted Pear-Butternut Soup with Crumbled Stilton

October/November 2006

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (157 votes)

Here pears are roasted to sweet perfection with butternut squash and pureed to create a creamy soup that gets a luxurious garnish of Stilton cheese. You can serve this as a first course or with a salad and crusty bread for a light autumn supper.

OMG

Best soup I've ever made or tasted! I substituted 2 cups of Trader Joe's Pear Cinammon Cider (a most try!) for 2 cups of the broth. Really brought out the flavor of fall!

Yum!

This was my second time making this soup, I love it. I made a few changes: I roasted about 6 cloves of garlic in foil when I roasted the veggies, I had about 1 cup of left over chickpeas so I pureed them with the soup and it made it nice and thick, I also added some cumin and red pepper to the finished product to deepen the flavor and to give it a kick. This is a great fall recipe!

The flavor of this soup was really great...and it was the first time I'd ever roasted a pear. Unfortunately, mine had that "grainy" pear texture. I used Bosc pears, which are pretty hard and generally gritty in texture. I would recommend going for a smoother pear. You could certainly change out the pear for apple, as well. Good taste though, the layer of blue cheese is interesting.

We just had the first snow of the season in CT, so I made this soup to bring to work for lunch. It is so delicious and was very easy to make. My pears weren't as ripe as they could have been, so the soup was a little tangy. I added 1/4 t. nutmeg to sweeten it up. The blue cheese added just the right amount of creaminess. Delicious!

This was a delicious soup! The smell definitely does fill the house while the veggies are roasting. My husband loved it so much that he just had it for breakfast! I did do a couple of things differently- I used MacIntosh apples instead of pears and I used reduced fat blue cheese instead of the stilton. I also put out walnuts and garlic croutons for condiments, which were yummy in the soup, too! Fall is my favorite season and this soup definitely helped me to celebrate that!
