The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim has been a game in my Steam Library for years now, however I only just recently started to play it in earnest. Back when I had more time to stream on my Twitch channel. This game is incredibly in-depth. There is so much to do that you can spends thousands upon thousands of hours playing the game and discovering everything. You could completely deviate off the main quest line and still have tons of content to play through. If you choose to download mods for the game then you can have even more content to play through. It is seriously incredible how much there is to do in this game.
On top of the thousands of hours worth of content, Skyrim also has a nice list of food items that you can find in game, many of which could be easily converted into real life recipes. That is what I decided to do today with Skyrim Potato Soup. The soup that I created from the game is rich and creamy and flavored with leeks (a common ingredient found in Skyrim). My kids aren’t very big soup eaters, but even they devoured this soup and asked for seconds.
It’s been a typical cold and snowy winter where I live and nothing is better than a bowl of soup when the weather is chilling you to your core. I came across the Sweet and Spicy Butternut Squash Soup recipe in Guild Wars 2 when leveling up the Chef craft on my Necromancer. I thought that it sounded unique and delicious so I decided to make up a recipe for it.
The in-game version of this soup can be made by characters that have the Chef crafting profession and a skill of 400. I tried to stick to the in-game recipe when considering ingredients for the real life version. The in-game version of recipe calls for apples, a bowl of butternut squash soup (which includes a stick of butter, cream soup base, cayenne pepper, and butternut squash), pile of pumpkin pie spice, and ghost peppers. The real-life version has similar ingredients and is nice and warming on cold winter days.
The addition of cayenne pepper to the soup adds an extra kick of warmth to the dish as well. The apple adds a hint of sweetness as well which adds a nice depth to the dish. Even my picky husband enjoyed this tasty soup.
