Parmesan Delicata Squash Soup

Sharing is caring!

I’m a lover all things Delicata. However, my absolute favorite way to eat it is in soup.  Earlier in the month Pacific Foods reached out to me to cook up something fun with their Organic Simply Stock and it didn’t take me long to start dreaming up a ways to use it.   Before I knew it, I was thinking of combining bacon, Delicata and Parmesan in a Delicata squash soup recipe that would shame all other recipes out there.

Now, before I wax on about this recipe I want to share a bit about Pacific Foods.  First, they are a local company for me.  I can literally pop in the car and be at their location in 30 minutes.  Second,  I’m grateful there are companies committed to making real food for those, like myself, who can be stretched for time and cannot make everything from scratch.

Now, on to the soup.  At first, I was hoping to make a casserole with the ingredients and wow, that just did not work.   The texture of Delicata in a casserole is not good – so don’t go getting any ideas.  Anyhow, I ended up throwing everything into my Blendtec and it was like finding a diamond inside a piece of coal.    I quickly ate a bowl and then saddled up for another.    It was warm, rich and the perfect comfort meal for these winter days.  To get the recipe for Parmesan Delicata Squash Soup visit  Pacific Foods today.

    I love that fall is finally here, and I can test out so many soup recipes. There have been a few mixed reviews of the delicata, but this one encouraged me to give it a shot.
