It’s time to switch up our fall soup options: Nada is serving up a bowl of vegetarian-friendly butternut squash soup that has made us forget all about plain old chicken noodle. But hurry—this soup is a seasonal item; it won’t be on the menu for long.
The soup uses a few simple ingredients. First, leeks are softened in butter and blended with pureed butternut squash, honey, and cream. Then, the mix is put through a Vitamix blender, which adds air to give it a smooth, velvety texture. The soup is garnished with crema, scallions, and pepitas for an added level of cream and crunch.
If you’re hungry for more, pair the butternut squash soup with Nada’s hongos tacos, a vegetarian favorite.
The taco combines a variety of textures through its mushrooms, rice, cheese, peppers, and avocado, all layered on a corn tortilla.
