Creamy Harvest Soup

3 lb. butternut squash

3 1/2 lb. carrots, coined

3 lb. sweet potatoes

1 large onion, minced

1 Tbs. salt

1/4 c. olive oil

1 bay leaf

2 qt. veggie broth

2 1/2 qt. soymilk

Parsley

Directions:  Halve the sweet potatoes. Halve the squash, sprinkle with olive oil and remove seeds. Bake both for 45 minutes at 350º until tender. At the same time, mix the carrots with a small amount of additional olive oil and salt and roast until dark, but not burned. While the vegetables are baking, sauté the onion and bay leaf in 1/4 cup olive oil until slightly caramelized. Add soymilk, salt, and veggie broth. Simmer very lightly to release bay leaf flavor into the soup. After the vegetables are done, scoop out the flesh from the squash and sweet potatoes. Add the vegetables to the soup. Puree with hand mixer or in blender until smooth. Adjust with more broth if the soup is too thick. Garnish with parsley and serve.

Turkey Hash 

Adapted from www.saveur.com.

Loaded with leftover turkey and other Thanksgiving ingredients, this hearty hash would make an excellent day-after-Thanksgiving breakfast (or lunch, or dinner)!

1 c. chicken stock

1 c. cream

1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

2 dashes hot sauce

1 Tbs. dry sherry

4 Tbs. butter

3 slices bacon

1 onion

1 red bell pepper, diced

1 poblano pepper, diced

1 lb. red potatoes, diced

1 Tbs. chopped fresh thyme

3 clove garlic, minced

2 c. chopped cooked turkey

4 eggs

Directions: In a small bowl, whisk together the chicken stock, cream, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and sherry. Set aside. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter, and add the bacon. Cook until crispy, about 5 minutes. Stir in the onion and peppers, and cook until softened, 10-12 minutes. Add the potatoes, garlic, and chopped turkey, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes begin to turn golden, about 15 minutes. Pour the stock and cream mixture evenly over the hash, then mash lightly with the back of a spoon, pressing the hash into the skillet. Cook until the hash holds together in a loose cake, and is browned on the bottom, 25-30 minutes. Set a 12-inch plate over the skillet, and carefully flip over to invert the hash onto the plate. Set aside.

Melt the last 2 tablespoons of butter in the skillet and scrape up any browned bits. Slide the hash back into the skillet, with the cooked side up. Crack the eggs on top of the hash. Cook until the potatoes are tender and the hash is browned on the bottom and the eggs are set, about 10 minutes. 

Serve hot, with more hot sauce if you like.
