I highly recommend this to anyone who likes avocado, I was surprised by how amazing/simple it was.
I used this recipe for the soup but I used half Delicata squash and half Butternut Squash because that is what I had on hand. I also substituted the butter for a smaller quantity of Earth Balance and omitted the sour cream. The soup turned out great, and I am so happy that I have an immersion blender now, it makes a huge difference.
I also made a mixed green salad of lettuce and delicious arugula; topped with dried cranberries, satsuma tangerines, and chopped almonds. For the dressing a mixed together a homemade vinaigrette using this recipe and it turned out delicious, the fresh garlic really has an impact on taste.
I saw this recipe today and thought, “I have a surplus of oatmeal that I need to use, I am making this for dinner!” Nerdy? Yes. Tasty? Hell yes.
So I decided to top it with some greenery, which is a simple mixture of:
1/2 One White Onion (turned pink by the Chard)
2 LG. Cloves of Garlic
1/4 Cup of chopped Walnuts
3 Cups Freshly Chopped Swiss Chard
These two together were SO GOOD! The oatmeal really wasn’t that cheesy tasting but it had great flavor and went well with the veggies. I went back for seconds and a half even, I’m terribly full but I don’t regret it!
Sidenote: I tripled the oatmeal recipe because I was not the only one eating; I also reduced a lot of the liquid out for more of a mashed potato consistency, but you can make them as runny as you’d like!
