Some of you may have heard the official news already! My trip to London last week was because Georgia May Jagger and I are joining the existing faces of the Rimmel London portfolio for their 2010 campaigns!! I'm very excited to be working with such a hip British brand!
Now I'm back home in Canada, relaxing in the peace and quiet of the Rockies for a few days. I cooked my favorite soup recipe for some friends the other day and it turned out quite well (If I may say so myself!!!) Its quite simple to make and perfect for this time of year so I thought I'd share the recipe with you. You'll need:
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamon, 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
7 cups of peeled, seeded and chopped butternut squash
3 granny smith apples peeled and chopped
3 cups of reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 cup of apple cider
So you start out by sauteing the onions until they are soft and then you add the cinnamon, cardamon and nutmeg. After that you add the squash and apples and saute them for a minute. Then add the chicken broth and bring it to a boil. Then you reduce the heat and cover it, letting it simmer until the squash is very tender. Next you puree the soup in a blender, add apple cider and then reheat it. And it's so good!
