Butternut Squash Soup

This month, we are featuring butternut squash in all of our special dishes. At the brink of spring, we wait anxiously for the greens, asparagus & strawberries that the next couple months will bring us. For now, our farmer’s root cellars still fortunately have some butternut squash. A mild winter has brought us more veggies than we normally enjoy, so that has been a delight. Butternut squash is one of those vegetables that can be prepared so many ways. This creamy bisque is rich and warming and the purée is a smooth compliment to the fresh tilefish we’re getting from the gulf this month. Enjoy both dishes and cheers to the approaching spring!
