Ive used 1/4 t pumpkin pie spice in ham soup w Similar vegetables, and it was great! (Maybe i added a little more spice)
Definitely put it all in the pot together (except parsley for garnish). I added red pepper flakes, cooked in a slow cooker and put it in the blender for more of a chowder.
This is shockingly good for being so simple! I’m certain the tahini, parsley, and fresh minced garlic are meant to be divided and served as garnishes with each individual bowl. Don’t skip them bc they are very important for the big flavor!
I was about to make the soup and as I was prepping my ingredients, I realized the same thing… I’m glad I read the comments! I’m going to add everything to the pot as well. Thanks!
I made this tonight and thought it was okay. I added the tahini to the pot not the bowel. I think it needs more spice and possibly a little sweetness too. A carrot maybe?
I’m a bit confused by the recipe. Why aren’t all the ingredients added to the soup in the pot, instead of adding ingredients into separate bowls? Has anyone added everything to the pot?
We were confused as well. My dad made it and it was delicious. He added the tahini, parsley, garlic and red peppers to the main pot when it was done with the 15 min simmer and it was delicious. I repeated it tonight with same results. Must be a typo in the recipe!
I too wondered why all the ingredients aren’t added into the pot. I may try it.
To save time I used pre cut butternut squash and a jar of roasted peppers. I blended some of the broth with a dollop of almond butter. I added some bits of spinach for color. Tasty and pretty!
I’m working on making this now. I’m confused about the last few ingredients: does each individual bowl get 2 T tahini, parsley, etc??
Made this today. Roasted pie pumpkin and red pepper on the grill and used one can of garbanzos and one can of great northern beans. Result was delicious!!! (I normally add lots of seasonings and heat to FoK recipes, but this one was tasty as is!)
Wow…. Sprinkling the lemon juice over the butternut squash and then baking it… the result is wow WOW.. big difference because of the lemon juice!!!
Tomorrow i continue to make the soup.. i bet this is going to be a triple WOW..
thank you for sharing!!
I can’t wait to try this recipe! It sounds delicious. If you would consider printing nutritional information such as grams of carbs, amount of sodium, etc. it would be very helpful. It is difficult to type recipe info into the apps available to make those calculations. Thank you.
Why did you give it five stars?
Due to the current cost of living crisis in the UK it’s expensive to turn the oven on especially when there’s only one person in a household..
can one air fry the squash and peppers or miss the roasting out and just do everything in one pot on top of a stove ?
I have used squash without roasting in other recipes and it works just fine. Just cook a little longer in the broth. For the bell peppers, maybe buy a jar of already roasted peppers or use a outdoor grill as others have suggested.
Not sure if it’s possible for you, someone stated that they grilled it and it came out very good. With air fryer, it may not char the peppers. Other than that it will cook. Perhaps put liquid smoke or smoked paprika to get some of “”char” flavor. Do your best with what you have.
You can double or triple the recipe. Make sûre your oven is full. And then put in the freezer for another time.
This recipe is deceptively packed with flavor! Loved this as did my kids.
