Butternut Squash Soup

 

 

 

Creamy Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

1 butternut squash, about 2 pounds
1 large yellow onion
1 head of garlic
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 to 2 teaspoons of dried thyme
3 to 4 cups vegetable or chicken broth

Season to taste

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  • Wash the vegetables. Cut the squash in half vertically. Scrape the seeds out and discard. Cut each half into about 4 chunks for a total of 8 pieces.
  • Cut the unpeeled onion in half vertically. Cut 1/2 inch off the top of the garlic head, exposing the cloves.
  • Arrange the garlic, squash, and onion, cut side up, on the baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with thyme.
  • Cover dish tightly with foil and bake until the squash is tender when pierced with a knife, about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • After vegetables have cooled enough to handle, scrape squash off of the skin and into a food processor or blender. Discard the skin.
  • Peel the skin off of the onion and trim the root and add the roasted onion to the squash. Separate 9 to 12 of the garlic cloves and squeeze the soft garlic in with the vegetables. Add any juices that have collected in the baking pan.
  • Add 3 cups of broth and puree the mixture until smooth. Add extra broth as needed to achieve your desired consistency.
  • Transfer soup to a 4 or 5 quart soup pot and heat over medium heat. Season with freshly ground pepper. If you like, garnish the soup in the bowl with a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil or some chopped parsley
