Thai Coconut Soup with Kabocha Squash

Thai Coconut Soup with Kabocha Squash recipe by SeasonWithSpice.com

Winter squash are amazing, aren’t they?  You can place a colorful one on your table for decoration, and months later – months! – you can chop it up, roast it, and eat it.  You can find one in the trunk of your car a few weeks after you forgot it was there, bring it to your kitchen, cook it, blend it, and enjoy a thick, creamy soup. 

It’s the coconut of the North.  Just as a coconut keeps you alive on a deserted island, winter squash will keep you alive – and healthy – through the toughest of winters.  They’re packed with Vitamin A & C, omega 3 fatty acids, and beta-carotene. 

Soy Glazed Kabocha Squash with Japanese Sesame Seasoning

It takes the strength and sharpness of a Japanese knife to cut through the dense, raw flesh of a Japanese pumpkin, but only the gentle touch of a Japanese seasoning to compliment its creamy, sweet, moist flavor.

African Peanut Stew

African Peanut Stew recipe by SeasonWithSpice.com

With the north wind blowing quietly through leafless branches, I’m hiding in the warmth of the kitchen, slowly stirring the rich broth of a stew.

Today it’s an African Peanut Stew that could easily be mistaken for a curry from Southeast Asia.

The same ingredients from the New World, like tomatoes, peanuts, chili peppers, and potatoes, found their way into cooking pots along the Spice Route across Africa and Asia.  When combined with Old World spices, elaborate curries were developed in India and Southeast Asia, and thick peanut stews in West Africa.

Thai Noodle Soup with Tofu, Mushroom & Zucchini

Thai Noodle Soup with Tofu, Mushroom & Zucchini by SeasonWithSpice.com

Hot and spicy with the sweet & sour notes of citrus.  Light, but nourishing.  Complexly flavored, but easy to prepare and cook.  And a welcome break between the heavy stews & soups of the fall and winter seasons.

That could describe one of so many Southeast Asian style soups generally enjoyed in the tropical heat, but feeling so much more appropriate in a winter setting when you rush in from the bitter cold, and take a sip of piping hot soup, like this Thai Noodle Soup with Tofu, Mushroom & Zucchini.
