Cookbook creator says: My recipe doesn't have the ham, but that is about the only difference. This recipe has the green peppers and vinegar(!), and I think that is the defining factor of Cuban Black beans for me.

This soup is drop dead gorgeous, with yellow background, floating orange carrots and bright green peas. Tasty too--spicy but not hot.

I usually microwave red potatoes (around 2.5 minutes per potato), but some occasions call for a little more flourish :-)

Cookbook creator says: Roasted vegies anyone? This is a great basic recipe. Substitute in parsnips, or brussel sprouts, or green beans, or mushrooms, and make your own favorite. Another way to go is to add some fresh spices like thyme or dill.

Creamy Butternut Squash & Apple Soup
Very Good 4.4/5
(112 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: I make this soup with pears instead of apples and 3 leeks instead of the onion, and I saute three cinnimon sticks along with the leeks, taking them out before blending up the soup. I usually don't add the cream, but I know it is even more heavenly with :)
