Winter Squash Bisque

What you need: 

1 box Cascadian Farms winter squash (thawed)
1 cup soy milk
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/8 teaspoon cayenne (plus a little bit for show)
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
salt to preference (just a pinch for me)
a little cilantro (for show)

What you do: 

Mix the thawed squash and soy milk in a pot and simmer for about 18 minutes (with the lid tilted to prevent boil over). Stir occasionally.
Stir in spices and salt. When bisque becomes creamy, pour into bowls.
After pouring into bowls, sprinkle in some more cayenne and a little cilantro in the center for show.

This was a good, easy recipe. Although I should point out, the preparation time says 5 minutes, and I mistakenly thought this would be done in 5 minutes. If you read the recipe carefully (which I didn't) it actually takes 18 minutes to cook. Anyhoo, I made this with rice milk instead of soymilk, and I omitted the cayenne because I can't eat spicy food. This was a good quick meal with homemade bread and salad. Although, I must say that it really doesn't make a whole lot. It says it serves 2 but realistically, I would probably call it 1 serving (and I'm a woman and don't eat a ton). Very good though, the cilantro was a nice touch.
