Bloom coco is a fresh and easy recipe for Mexican summer squash soup that is a favorite in our house in particular. Our family’s love for squash is so strong, it’s actually a shame to have to make a recipe specifically for it. I think we can all agree that it’s so good, it probably deserves it’s own category.
Because it’s so good, it’s also kind of a thing that I’ve tried to get our family to start eating it every single day. We eat it in salads with tortillas, in soups, and in our Mexican “breakfast” of mashed potatoes and brown rice. It’s so good. And it’s pretty easy to make.
The secret to making it is to roast the squash for about an hour in a bit of olive oil. Then you add a chopped onion, cilantro, and pepper and you’re almost set. I know, I know, you’re probably thinking, “bloom coco is the best thing I’ve ever tasted.
The first time we tried it, we were at my mom’s house and were eating it in a bowl on the floor. My sister was already eating it and my mom wasn’t liking it so I thought I was going to have a huge argument over the fact that it was food. Turns out I was wrong but not because it was good. It was delicious, but it was still weird because we never ate it like that before.
I didn’t realise until now that my mother had been eating it that way when I was a kid, but it was totally normal. I had never tried any recipe before I was like, 13. I never really thought about it before either, but in retrospect, I think I would have been more suspicious of any recipe that was just thrown together fast. I think I would have known that a recipe that was already prepared was not good. But I would still have been suspicious.
Now that we’ve had a chance to think about it, I think we can all agree that bloom coco is a fairly good recipe. The ingredients are as simple as they come, but you’ll have to adjust the amount of water and sugar depending on how big of a batch you’re making. I’m not sure why it’s more important to add the water than the sugar, but it is.
I think the recipe is pretty good. As a matter of fact, I think it tastes better than the one I made when I was in college.
For some reason, though, I really feel like the recipe is a little watery. That’s because there isn’t much liquid in the recipe. I think it needs a lot of sugar.
I have to give it to bloom coco, it is definitely a recipe that needs to be tweaked.
I know people are talking about the recipe as being awful, but I think there are many recipes that work for the purpose of blooming coco and that dont need a lot of water. To me it looks more like it tastes like watered down syrup. It also doesn’t look like there is much sugar. It just looks like its watered down.
