Butternut Squash, Apple, Sweet Potato Soup with Crème Fraîche and Crispy Pancetta



First of all, how gorgeous is this soup? It has the nigh velvety texture as well as the addition of the crème fraîche in addition to crispy pancetta takes it to the side by side level. I postulate texture no thing what I’k eating, so the pancetta was a must. It adds a perfect salty seize with teeth to counteract the sweetness of the soup. I used honeycrisp apple inwards the soup (my absolute fav), as well as it only adds a picayune sweet. I couldn’t intend of a more comforting fall soup to make. This soup would be totally awesome amongst my Apple Cheddar Grilled Cheeses alongside Honey Sage Mascarpone Spread for dipping. I mean I power but accept to make that.


This soup is rattling slow, and the solely equipment you necessitate is an immersion blender or regular blender to puree the soup. It comes together inwards under an hour. Perfect for a weeknight meal!


Also, if y'all want to sub the crème fraîche or pancetta for sour cream or bacon, y'all definitely tin. I could position crispy pancetta on everything.
