We’re well into autumn and quickly closing in on that whole “holiday season” thing everybody keeps talking about. This sort of information often gives rise to a host of different emotions among different types of people, like giddiness or dread due to the impeding snowpocalypse.
But, if there’s one thing we can agree sparks a feeling of warmth in the hearts of us all, it’s butternut squash soup. The warm, creamy fall favorite is simply happiness in disguise, so we’ve decided to share with you a few of our favorite versions you can find around Westchester.
Harvest Celebration Soup
Ladle of Love — Bronxville
This Westchester favorite is straight up sweet, savory, and soothing, no doubt about it. You can order it from owner Leslie Lampert’s Ladle of Love outpost for pickup or delivery (essentially anywhere in Westchester), or try to craft it yourself with this all-star Harvest Celebration Soup recipe!
Butternut Soup Bowl
The Little Beet — White Plains
A relative newcomer to White Plains’ fast-casual dining scene, The Little Beet does a fantastic job of making creative meals more accessible for those with restrictive diets. Even more creative: their seasonal butternut soup bowl. It’s a crafty combination of their diverse lunch bowl offerings and possibly the greatest soup to ever exist. Freakin’ genius.
Butternut Squash Soup
Jean-Jacques Culinary Creations — Pleasantville
Butternut squash soup is one of those things that makes your eyes light up when caught on a menu, but can easily disappoint if it’s not up to par with your expectations. When it comes to Jean-Jacques’ version, not many others can stand up to its rich, creamy, and perfect consistency. This bowl of delight will never disappoint.
Roasted Butternut Squash Bisque
X2O Xavier’s on the Hudson — Yonkers
X2O Xaviar’s on the Hudson offered a very tasty Butternut Squash Bisque — with ginger marshmallow and pumpkin seed oil. (Sure hit the spot on a cold winter day.) . . . #lucasaferrara @x2oxaviarsonhudson @peterxkelly . . . #soup #bisque #butternutsquash #butternutsquashsoup #ginger #gingermarshmallow #pumpkin #pumpkinseed #pumpkinseedoil #butternutsquashbisque #x2o #x2oxaviarsonthehudson #food #foodie #yonkers #yonkersny #chef #peterxkelly #xaviarsrestaurantgroup #ironchef #ironchefamerica #jamesbeardawardwinner #finedining
You can’t go wrong with X2O’s. You can’t go wrong with butternut squash soup. So (due to the transient property or whatever algebra is needed to justify these soup cravings) it stands to reason that you simply can’t go wrong with X2O’s roasted butternut squash bisque. Plus, it’s served with a charming ginger marshmallow and a dash of Slovenian pumpkin seed oil, so you know it’s made with a dash of love.
