My pilates instructor and I talk about food quite a bit during our workout. It sounds funny, but when you get two people together who love food, it’s inevitable.We were talking about butternut squash last
fall, which lead to my making a curried butternut squash soup. By the next session we had both made the soup and she had the great idea of adding chicken and rice to the soup. I told her I was stealing her idea and went home and made curried butternut squash soup with chicken, rice and spinach.
I didn’t want to roast or poach a chicken, so I bought a store-roasted chicken and chopped up the meat.
I used the pasta method to cook one cup of rice, which yielded three cooked cups.
Finally I tossed in ten ounces of fresh baby spinach.
This butternut squash soup with chicken, rice and spinach is a hearty meal and it always nice to repurpose a recipe.
Happy National Soup Month!
