Soul Sisters

Hey, where is everyone this week? Here in Toronto, it's a perfect week for soup. I made mine with a grilled cheeze sandwich.

Overall, the soup was good. I didn't have squash pre-cut and i hate cutting hard squash, so i just used more potatoes and added eggplant. One thing that struck me is using corn starch as a thickener. My mom taught me to use flour and to add it at the beginning, and i feel like i could taste the starchiness the corn starch contributed.

Other than that, i love making soups and this was no exception. I have lots left over, and will have to add more water because it's more of a wet casserole now, but will develop even tastier today.

That looks yummy! I love soups and sandwiches together. My mom taught me to use flour too, although that can also sometimes give things a weird taste, but not like corn starch does. I guess finding the right amount to add is a science.

i've made it and eaten it twice, but i haven't taken pictures yet...

cutting the hard squash was a pain!

Rice flour is a great alternative to regular wheat flour, especially for gluten-free diets.

I agree about squash being a chore to cut. I wondered about the cornstarch too, I guess I'll skip it when I make it. I might puree the squash before I add it, what do you think of that?
