View Full Version : Warming Autumn Food
09-27-2009, 07:00 PM
I tried to search this and didn't find anything, although I'm sure it must have come up before. Forgive me if it's a repeat.
I started 100% raw (my version) last November. Throughout the summer, I became really well-versed in making wonderfully simple and tasty meals. But I find myself lost now that the cold, damp weather is settling in. I miss my old butternut squash soup. I tried a faux version that I made up, but it was really awful. I have 2 great chili recipes, otherwise, I'm a bit lost. I still have things I enjoy eating, but I always loved eating seasonal food. So, I suppose I'm looking for squash recipes. I really enjoyed many dishes with squash prior to going raw. I'm sure I can find some, but would love a stamp of approval from someone who has found something they love.

Not sure about squash but adding ginger,cayenne and such warms the body. I hear you on the seasonal foods. Sure there are things to make. Put em in the dehy to warm!!!

I just made a recipe from RFRW this weekend.
it was pumpkin and yellow squash marinated in evoo with alot of spices. Then there was a spicey sauce made of peppers tomatoes and oil.
Basically, I'm going to use the technique alot. Going to come up with different spice profile, marinate, and dehydrate till tender. Book said 3 hours yellow squash, 6 for the pumpkin in the dehydrator. This can replace the "tofu idea" in any of various sauces or mixes.
When cooking one year - I made a great pumpkin chili. If you chili recipe are raw, add some marinated tenderated pumkin:)
I've tried the spicy warming soup idea with pumpkin and squash in the vitamix....so far all disappointments....

Just what I was looking for. I woke up this morning to a cool day in Florida and started thinking about soup for the fall and winter. I am going to Scarborough Fair Vegetable Soup or the Butternut Squash one. Thanks for the links.

Thanks, T-Bird! I [U]have[U] RFRW, too! Can't wait to have a warm pumpkin soup with some warm bread and butter. Makes me really appreciate fall.

cool - you have the book!
It was called something like "pumpkin and <yellow> squash couscous"
I made the pumpkin and squash and the pepper/tomato topping. It was good!

Thanks, T-Bird, I found the recipe in RFRW. Looks like more than I feel like getting into for right now, but I'm going to try dehydrating the pumpkin for 6 hours or so like the recipe says. Maybe that will make a pumpkin soup edible. I'll let you know.

Good idea! I'll try it too!
Yeah - that recipe was pretty involved (and how many cups of chopped peppers?!?!?!)
but I just thought that the marinading and dehydrating of the pumpkin and squash made them good and tasty and they could be thrown on salds, pastas, in caseroles, whatever.
I've been enjoying unpasteurized cider (available at some HFS) with fuji apple slices stuck into medjol dates (just like candy apples!)
