Pumpkin-Squash Bisque

Pumpkin-Squash Bisque

This year I grew round zucchini. These things are very common in Uruguay and Argentina. When picked small (baseball), they can be stuffed and are simply delicious.

Small Round Zucchini (Zapallitos)

I let one grow to the size of a soccer ball so I could save the seeds for next year. At this point it taste similar to a pumpkin, so I decided that this guy plus the decoration out front would make a nice autumn soup!

I loosely followed this recipe. Alton Brown’s Squash Soup

This is roughly what it had in it:

1/2 small pumpkin
1 Round Zucchini
1 tablespoon kosher salt, plus 1 teaspoon
1 teaspoon black pepper, plus 1/2 teaspoon
3 cups chicken or vegetable stock
1 teaspoon minced ginger
3 ounces evaporated milk
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup of rescued pumpkin dip (This was saved in the freezer). This is the unknown, it had all sorts of stuff in it. It was mostly canned pumpkin, sugar, cream cheese and misc spices. Adding some honey and cream should reproduce this if you want a sweeter soup…

This turned out to be a delicious autumn bisque!
