Harvest Vegetable Jalapeno Bisque. As fall approaches, I am always looking for new ideas for recipes that will be traditional, yet different. For some reason, we crave both comfort and variety in food, so creating new recipes with traditional ingredients seems to be the best compromise to meet those divergent needs in recipe development.
Weather is definitely a factor that will drive our food choices. It is seriously 95 degrees in Southern California today, October 24th and while we are fighting heat and fires, Colorado has white out snow. For that reason, I post recipes that unrelated to my weather conditions, because I know that somewhere, someone is looking for a warm and comforting soup.
This soup is definitely warm and comforting. Not only is it hot soup, the addition of jalapeno peppers to traditional soup ingredients of carrots, sweet potatoes and apples, makes it just the right amount of spicy hot.
In about 30 minutes, you can be sitting down to this comfort food; add some sauteed zucchini and flat bread, and you have dinner!
