Ingredients

  • 1 medium-sized butternut squash
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 4 cups of vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup of heavy cream (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Cut the butternut squash in half lengthwise, scoop out the seeds, and place it on a baking sheet.
  3. Roast the squash in the oven for about 45 minutes, or until it’s tender and can be easily pierced with a fork.
  4. While the squash is roasting, heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the diced onion and garlic, sauté until softened.
  5. Once the squash is done, let it cool slightly, then scoop out the flesh and add it to the pot with the onion and garlic.
  6. Add the vegetable broth, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and pepper to the pot. Bring to a simmer and let it cook for 15-20 minutes.
  7. Use an immersion blender to puree the soup until smooth. Alternatively, you can transfer it to a blender in batches.
  8. If desired, stir in the heavy cream for extra creaminess.
  9. Simmer for an additional 5 minutes to heat through, then serve hot.
