Friday night, after the baguette-making, I needed another “quick and easy” recipe (and also something I could dunk my heavenly crispy and warm baguette slices into!) for dinner.
My friend Nicole shared this article from the NY Times on recipes from New Orleans salvaged after Katrina. One of the recipes featured was this spicy-sweet bisque adapted from “Cooking Up a Storm: Recipes Lost and Found From The Times-Picayune of New Orleans”. And since I had a bunch of sweet potatoes from the share last weekend, I had to make it! The jalapenos and cayenne spice MAKES this dish! Awesome. Thank you Hurricane Katrina for this one silver lining.
