Roasted Squash Soup

  • servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 1 large butternut squash, halved and seeded
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 8 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 whole head garlic, unpeeled
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 to 3 cups warm Homemade Chicken Stock, or low-sodium canned

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat; set aside.

  2. Step 2

    Season squash with salt and pepper, and tuck 4 sprigs of thyme into each cavity. Place squash, cut side down, and garlic on the baking sheet. Drizzle garlic with olive oil, and season with salt. Roast until fork-tender, about 40 minutes. Remove from oven, and let stand until cool enough to handle.

  3. Step 3

    Discard thyme, and scoop the flesh of the squash into a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Peel 4 cloves of garlic, and add to the food processor. Reserve the remaining garlic for another use. Add about 1 cup stock, and process until smooth. With machine running, add remaining stock until the soup reaches desired consistency. Transfer to a medium saucepan and heat through. Taste and adjust for seasoning. Serve immediately.

    I love this recipe since there's a few of us in the house that are lactose intolerant - it's good for all and for those that want more creaminess, you can add a little after the fact.
    The roasted flavor is hard to beat and is just too simple to mess up. If I can make it and produce a tasty result, it must be easy!
