Though we supposed to be in the middle of the cooler rainy season, gray, wet days like today are rare. Everybody is slowly getting tired of the constant heat and rice farmers are facing a huge challenge.

Rice is grown in water. No rain means no water-filled rice paddies. Let’s hope the monsoon comes soon as I don’t know what the Cambodian people are going to do without their rice. Khmers, like many other Asian people, eat rice for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Plus, many in-between snacks are made of rice too.

On a rainy day like this, I feel so happy with the big pot of soup I made yesterday. Pure comfort food! And the best part… these butternuts are locally grown without the use of chemicals by a friend of a friend. Some of the butternuts were quite small, lucky me I got there as one of the first people to pick my own.

Yeah for local organic food. You can taste the difference.

ALMOND BUTTERNUT SOUP WITH HOMEMADE RYE SOURDOUGH BREAD


Butternut squash is an orange winter squash, known for its versatility and slightly sweet, nutty flavor. Next to its many culinary uses (in both sweet and savory dishes), butternut squash packs a punch of good-for-you vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants while being low in calories.

Though I often add raw butternut or pumpkin to my smoothies, winter squash is commonly roasted or baked.

INGREDIENTS


  • 1 big butternut squash or 2 medium ones, quartered
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 750ml to 1L veggie stock
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • Balck pepper and Himalayan pink salt to taste

For serving:


  • Rye sourdough, toasted
  • Fresh parsley, chopped
  • Sunflower seeds

INSTRUCTIONS


Preheat oven to 200C or 400F.

Roast the butternut, skin on, with cooking oil (we used olive oil) until fork-tender. Scrape out the flesh.

Meanwhile, saute onion for about 5 minutes, then add garlic and cook for 1 to 2 minutes more. When ready and fragrant, add butternut flesh, stock, almond milk, pepper, and salt. Cook for about 10 minutes.

How strange that you're still dry and waiting for rains - it is SO WET in Thailand this year - and raining hard 2 and 3 times a day. Steamy as!! Must say I'm jealous of your butternuts - Thai people don't grow them much and they're hard to find here.

But you HAVE inspired me to make all things PUMPKIN. They are stupidly cheap. Hmmmm.... pumpkin soup for lunch and a roasted pumpkin-black-bean-rocket salad for dinner, methinks.

Your cooking ALWAYS inspires, my dear!! 😍

Really? So strange. Almost no rain here. Getting really worrisome fo the farmers. I hope it starts soon. Also for Tonle Sap. The lake is very dry and so many people depend on it for fishing. Let's cross fingers that we soon get some rain. And yes. So grateful that we have somebody growing butternut now. So good. Have a beautiful day!

Sending you rainy thoughts, as the clouds are already gathering at midday and I'm hoping the laundry is dry.

!ENGAGE 15

Hehe... today we finally had a little rain. Hope your laundry was dry. It can be a pain in the ass to dry laundry in the rainy season.

Thank you for your engagement on this post, you have recieved ENGAGE tokens.

It's raining down on us now and I just said I would love a bowl of soup. Then this delicious recipe showed up.😘

Haha... I wish we lived closer together so I could serve you a bowl!

Thanks for the love and support xxx

Man, the darn time difference means I often miss your posts, but thank goodness @artemislives Tweets a lot of them so I can come back and look! We actually have two beautiful butternut squash on the vine right now from a volunteer plant, so I think some butternut soup will be in our future soon, as well. That looks like a fantastic harvest of squash! Though I think I will break into the Candy Roaster squash first, as I pulled that one off weeks ago and haven't cooked it yet! Love all the orange produce! Sending wet thoughts your way in the hope that the rainy season will finally come.

Same here. And for some reason, my phone doesn't want to accept my key so can't log in to hive from my phone. Gonna try soon again but with those million characters passwords I quickly give up if they don't work after a few tries lol. Hope you are well in these strange times. Enjoy those butternuts xxx

Oh man, good luck with the passwords. I just downloaded dapplr to access Hive on my phone (only available on android right now I believe), and I have to say it is quite nice!

These are strange times indeed. Just trying to focus on the positive and hope the rest sorts itself out soon!

Ha, thanks for dapplr tip... will check that out.

I hope you see rain again soon. In the mean time, enjoy the butternuts, but don't get sick of them. 😂 That looks like a lot!
