  • 3 butternut squash
  • 1 small chopped onion
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 chopped shallot
  • 16 oz. chicken stock or broth
  • 12 oz. heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • splash sherry or white wine

Preparation Instructions

  • In a heavy-bottomed soup pot, sauté onions, celery, garlic, and shallots until translucent. Cut squash in half, remove seeds, and roast in 350-degree oven for about 40 minutes. Deglaze* with sherry and reduce wine by two-thirds. Peel squash and add pulp to soup pot and bring to a simmer. Add remaining ingredients to soup pot and simmer for an hour. Purée soup with a stick mixer or food processor until smooth. Strain soup with a chinois (fine metal strainer) and serve.
  • *When you are making a soup or sauce, food will brown and stick to the bottom of the pot; this is called fond. Splash in a bit of alcohol or other liquid and scrape the bottom of the pot or pan with a wooden spoon to gently scrape all those pieces of food up, for added flavor. You always want to use either wood or plastic as metal can scratch.

    This warms the soul! I have never been fond of squash or pumpkin soups however what an awesome surprise for the palette! So glad I gave this a chance. I cannot get enough, of course this is rich but will have you craving more or looking for it on menu's when the leaves change in the fall!
