It's a bittersweet feeling when fall rolls around. Beach frolicking days may be over but crisp, cool days call us back to the kitchen to enjoy the fall bounty. Try this heartwarming soup featuring butternut squash and turkey.
Turkey Squash Soup
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 leeks, trimmed, chopped and rinsed
1 red pepper, diced small
3 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 pounds butternut squash, cut into
2 teaspoons thyme
1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
1 pound turkey cutlets, diced small
2 cups corn
2 tablespoons lime juice
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add leeks and pepper and cook, stirring often, until the vegetables begin to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute more. Stir in broth, squash, thyme and cumin; cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until the vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Add turkey and corn; return to a simmer and cook until the turkey is just cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Add lime juice and season with salt and pepper.

Honest Quote of the Week
"Monsanto should not have to vouchsafe the safety of biotech food. Our interest is in selling as much of it as possible. Assuring its safety is the F.D.A's job."
~Phil Angell, Monsanto's director of corporate communications, in an interview with the New York Times
