Hammah’S Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

We had a virtual cooking session and another team member walked us through this recipe. I've made it many times since and it's never disappointed. You can be flexible with the mirepoix mix.

Prep
Cook
Serves 6people
Ingredients
1
large butternut squash (about 3 pounds), I would recommend buying the precut in the fresh veggie aisle or it will take an hour to prepare.
1
tbsp olive oil, plus more for drizzling
Cream or milk to taste (you can skip this)
1
cup mirepoix
1
cup chopped onion
1
cup chopped celery
1
peeled carrot
1
tsp salt
1
bay leaf
Ground nutmeg to taste (I like a lot but ⅛ teaspoon is fine)-best fresh nutmeg and grind at time of cooking.
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
4-5
cup (24 to 32 ounces) chicken or vegetable broth
I prefer better than bullion such a good base!
1-2
tbsp butter, to taste
Directions
1.
On a flat roasting pan take cubed squash and place on pan. Add salt and pepper and olive oil. Mix together. Place in 400 degree oven and roast (heat from top) for ten minutes, take out mix again until caramelized but not burned. Set aside to cool.
2.
In a large cooking pot add celery and onions olive oil and some butter. Place on medium low heat and stir occasionally until onions are translucent. Make sure you do not burn the onions.
3.
Take soup base and add hot water to make 5 cups of soup set aside until mirepoix is cooked through
4.
Add roasted squash and mix well.
5.
Add Soup Base
6.
Add bay leaf
7.
Add carrot whole
8.
Simmer until squash starts to break apart (maybe 20 minutes)
9.
Take out carrot and then use immersion blender to blend to a smooth texture. You can also use a regular blender but immersion blender much faster.
10.
Grate some nutmeg. I like a lot of nutmeg and put in almost half a nut but just add some to your liking.
11.
Add salt and pepper to taste
12.
Add a little cream if you want.
13.
Finis
