Okay so technically it’s not Monday but since we had a long holiday weekend I waited until today to post this. My meatless Monday recipe for September is this creamy cinnamon corn bisque! It’s the perfect soup to help you welcome in the Fall season. A few weeks ago I had a similar corn bisque at a local restaurant. It was ahhhmazing to say the least and I knew I wanted to recreate it at home. This is my version of a cinnamon corn bisque, I added butternut squash to mine which only made this recipe even more delish!! Check out the recipe:
- 4 tbsp EVOO
- 1/2 sweet onion
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 1 carrot, shredded
- 3 -4 ears of corn
- 10 oz butternut squash
- 3 cups vegetable broth
- 1/4 tsp parsley
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- pepper to taste
- Chop your onion, garlic and carrot. Add onion and carrot with some olive oil to pot on medium heat and sauté. Once the onion starts to turn golden add your garlic and sauté for an additional minute or two.
- While onion is sautéing, roast corn and butternut squash for a few minutes on each side. I did this on the grill (medium heat) but you can use the oven too. Shell corn kernels and place in the food processor with the butternut squash. Puree vegetables.
- Add corn and butternut squash along with the rest of the ingredients to the pot. Turn heat down to low and allow to simmer for 15 – 20 minutes. Stirring occasionally.
- Sprinkle with a pinch of cinnamon and enjoy!
*Note: You may want to puree carrots for an even creamier bisque. This can be done before or after cooking.
This is always that time of year for me when it’s the end of Summer and not quite Fall yet but you’re ready to switch things up (fashion wise that is!). So if you’re wondering, like me, what to wear during this period of wardrobe transition, Madewell’s got you covered! I’ve also included some additional faves at the end of this post. Don’t miss ’em!!
I’m swooning over all the denim pieces!

I can happily say that I’m ready for Fall! I’ve finished my Fall shopping, I’ve got my outfits all picked out, now I just need the weather to cool off so I can actually wear them (ha!). Pumpkin picking just isn’t the same when it’s 75 degrees out. So while I’m at the pumpkin patch is a t-shirt and shorts, here’s what I’d much rather be wearing:
sweater // gold ear climbers // grey tote
distressed jeans // sunglasses // pearl iPhone case
pearl cuff bracelet // ankle boots
I always love to try and put a coastal spin on holiday decorations. That way the decorations fit right in with my turquoise home instead of sticking out. For a little added inspiration this year, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite coastal Fall tablescapes! Check ’em out:
