Copycat Panera Autumn Squash Soup – A Simple Palate (Video)

It’s that time of year again, where folks are craving pumpkin everything!  If you’re looking for a great pumpkin muffin recipe, we’ve got you covered!  Today, I wanted to share a terrific soup recipe from Bethany over at A Simple Palate. You can learn more about Bethany here.  I read that she is a Jersey girl, like me!!  Taking a quick look around, I know that I’ll be back for more wonderful recipes. 

Today’s recipe is a copycat version of that wonderful Autumn Squash soup you may have had at Panera Bread.  My friend Helena had introduced me to this and I’ve always wanted to make it at home. 

Of course, I wanted it to be as easy as possible, so in comes my Deluxe Cooking Blender! Yes, you read that right, it cooks.  I make sauces, soups and jams regularly with Blenda (ugh, yes, I named her), and she even has a heated wash setting!  Here’s more info:

Best Blender for Smoothies—and Soup!

Blenders aren’t just for smoothies anymore. Our innovative blender has settings that heat up to 220˚F (104˚C), which means it doesn’t just blend—it cooks.

With a cooking blender, you can make everything from smoothies and milkshakes to soups, jams, alternative milks, and nut butters. With eight preprogrammed settings and two custom settings, there’s no guesswork. The pitcher has a 6-cup capacity for hot food and 7-cup capacity for cold food, and comes with a tamper, dual-sided cleaning brush, strainer bag, boil-over guard, and a cooking guide with more than 60 recipes.
