The Art of Soup Making



Roasted Butternut Squash Soup
Yields 8 - 10 servings

Ingredients
4 pounds butternut squash
1 jumbo sweet potato
1 tablespoon sea salt – Divided
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
¼ cup olive oil – Divided
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon pumpkin spice mix
1 gallon Vegetable Broth

Preparation
Preheat oven to 450 degrees
Slice squash lengthwise and remove seeds 
Wash sweet potato and cut in half lengthwise
Brush the inside of the potato & squash lightly with olive oil then sprinkle lightly with salt, pepper and garlic powder. 
Bake in oven 45 minutes or until tender.  The potato will get done before the squash, so remove it when it’s done. 
Once they are cool enough to handle, remove skin from the potato and scoop the squash out of its skin with a tablespoon.  Mash both the potato and squash with a potato masher. Add vegetable broth to a large stockpot and place over medium heat. 
Add mashed vegetables to the broth. 
Sprinkle in the remaining salt, coriander and pumpkin spice then mix thoroughly. 
Bring soup to a boil then reduce heat to medium low.  Cook uncovered 30 - 45 minutes or until soup thickens, stirring occasionally. 
If you have an immersion blender (hand blender), puree the soup in the pot. 
If you do not have an immersion blender, transfer soup in batches to a food processor or blender and puree; then return it to the pot. 
Check for seasoning and add pumpkin spice/salt – ½ teaspoon at a time if needed. 
Bring the soup back up to a boil then reduce heat to medium low. 
Continue cooking uncovered an additional 15 minutes or until it reaches the desired thickness.  Keep in mind that once the soup sets, it will become twice as thick.

  2. Thanks for the recipe,this was a delicious soup .It was easy to make also. The only problem that I had was that after I roasted the squash and sweet potato I tasted them to see if they were done.And OMG they tasted so delicious that I kept tasting and tasting and ate half of them before I completed the soup. Next time I will practice more self control, or maybe I'll just double the recipe ,yep that's what I'll do!I'm loving your soups A&J,keep them coming.
