#letsgo - Sopa De Leche (Peruvian Milk Soup with Squash and Potatoes) / Homemade Soup Day
I actually usually don't make homemade soup, except for chicken noodle. I usually buy "homemade soup" and warm it up on the stove. Don't hate. :) But this soup on the Food Network app looked interesting -- Sopa de Leche (Peruvian Milk Soup w/ Squash and Potatoes). If it sounds really exotic, it's basically a corn and potato chowder soup -- also with pasta and an egg.
Feb. 4 is Homemade Soup Day!
What I used:
- Evaporated milk
(I just started using evaporated milk and keeping it in the pantry in case I don't have cold milk around.)
- Butternut Squash (these were pre-cut as noodles; I couldn't find the cubes) I usually buy pre-cut vegetables to save time. :)
- Garlic (I had 1 clove and some mined garlic)
- Minced onions (forgot the onions, oops)
- Protein Barilla Penne
I actually made the soup at night for the next day because I felt like cooking it then -- however I planned to add the pasta and egg the next day. I actually think that it probably made it taste better because the flavors melded together overnight. :)
I got the garlic and onions going in the pot with butter. Then I added the milk, water and some squash. I added the corn and cilantro. To add the potatoes, I microwaved them for 6 min. and then I rough chopped them. That helped them get cooked faster.
The next day...
(I didn't add the pasta because I didn't want it to get mushy.)
I cooked some penne and added it in. Then I added an egg and microwaved it for 2-3 minutes. It seemed faster than waiting for the egg to cook in the soup. In the instructions, they put the egg into the soup.
The way I plated it I made the egg more prominent -- for the photo; haha! Anyways, it's really yummy! It's a nice hearty soup for #HomemadeSoupDay or any day! You can take a trip to Peru and try this soup. :) Like I said above, if it sounds really exotic, it's basically a corn and potato chowder soup -- also with pasta and an egg..
Give it a try! We are good at this!
