I've previously worked with Sunrise Senior Living before, on their End Loneliness campaign, a campaign that was, and a cause that still is, very close to my heart. Back then I made their Paprika and Red Onion Chicken which was absolutely delicious, you can read all about it here. This time, the recipe which caught my eye from the newly released cookbook was the Butternut Squash and Chestnut Soup. There's nothing lovelier on a cold and blustery day than a nice, warming bowl of homemade soup. Jacek usually makes batches of homemade soup during the winter months but I can't recall us having any this year, so it was high time that we all enjoyed a bowl of wholesome soup for ourselves.
I was delighted with out the soup turned out, I've never actually made my own soup before. As I said, Jacek is the soup maker of the house, but it came out great and was really delicious - the Sunrise recipes never seem to fall flat when it comes to the taste testing! Even Tyler Lee enjoyed a bowl and that's saying a lot considering he's a very fussy eater.
The Butternut Squash and Chestnut Soup recipe from the Sunrise cookbook is below if you'd like to give it a go for yourself. I promise you won't be disappointed by the taste, it's delicious!
