Roasted Pear-Butternut Soup with Crumbled Stilton

October/November 2006

Your rating: None Average: 4 (166 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.



READER'S COMMENT:
"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...

A fabulous taste of autumn. My entire family loved the taste of roasted vegetables.

I thought this soup was much better the next day--luckily being just two of us we had plenty of leftovers. The Stilton really makes the soup. I don't have fresh tomatoes on hand in November, so I used canned tomato sauce and only used 1/2 the salt called for in the recipe. Used onions instead of leeks and tons more garlic and roasted some carrots along with the pears and squash. This is the kind of recipe that you can play around with. Next time I think I'll try it with vegetarian chicken broth, since I found the veggie broth to be a little overpowering.

This soup is so delicious. Kids, teens and adults ask for second helpings of this recipe. This soup freezes well; it tastes just as good when reheated. I will serve it at our Thanksgiving dinner.

This soup was wonderful! I served it with garlic cracked wheat toast. I bought Gorgonzola cheese instead of Stilton because I hate blue cheese, but thought I would give it a go in something. It was perfect with the soup.

This is just about the best soup I have ever made. My husband and I can't wait for the fall to get some fresh soup on the table and in the freezer. I cannot recommend this recipe highly enough!
