Squash Soup and Eggplant Caponata
The squash soup recipe is from Art Smiths' Back to the Table. The Eggplant Caponata came from Food & Wines website, http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/eggplant-caponata.
I've had a cold the last few days so wanted a hot soup. I hadn't scoured some cookbooks in a while, so I did that the other day, marking recipes I wanted to try. I wanted a cold and mild side dish in case the soup was too spicy. I thought the Caponata was a little too sweet. Next time I might leave the sugar out, but otherwise it went nicely with the rest of the meal. The soup was very good, but I didnt think the pumpkin seeds did much for it.
