Ingredients

  • 2 med butternut squash
  • 2 Tbs olive oil, divided
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 2 med sweet onions, chopped
  • 2 med carrots, chopped
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 quart vegetable stock (or chicken stock or water)
  • 1 Tbs poultry seasoning
  • 2 cups heavy cream

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Slice squash in half lengthwise and clean out seeds and stringy parts of the squash. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt.
  • Place cut side down in a baking dish and roast until tender, for about 1 hour. Roasting time will vary according to size of squash.
  • Chop onions, carrots, and celery. You can put them in the food processor and pulse them until they are finely chopped.
  • Preheat a large soup pot. Drizzle with olive oil. Add chopped vegetables and sprinkle with kosher salt. Sauté until the vegetables are tender. Add stock.
  • When squash is roasted, remove and let cool. Scoop flesh of the squash out of the skin and add to soup pot. Add poultry seasoning. Bring to a boil and cook over medium heat for 15–20 minutes.
  • Then either puree in a blender in batches or use a submersible blender to puree it in the pot.
  • Add cream. Heat through but don't bring to a boil again. Serve and enjoy!
