Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Put squash into a baking dish with the cut side down. Pour enough water into the baking dish to cover the bottom.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until the flesh of the squash is easily pricked with a fork, about 45 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool until squash can be handled. Scoop flesh into a bowl and set aside.
  4. Melt butter in a pot over medium-high heat. Cook onion, carrot, and garlic in melted butter until soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Pour chicken stock into the pot; add the squash.
  5. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes.
  6. Pour mixture into a blender no more than half full. Cover and hold lid down; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Puree in batches until smooth and return to pot.
  7. Stir half-and-half, nutmeg, and cinnamon through the blended soup; season with salt and pepper. Thin the soup with water if desired.

This was a tasty recipe--but I'll warn you right now, I revised it for a slow cooker only because I don't do ovens when the temps are still in the triple digits (like they are in Phoenix right n...

We did not like this at all. Maybe I did something wrong....it tastes like hairspray.

11/30/2012: I made this for 17 people on Thanksgiving, and it was a hit! I used 2 acorn squash and 2 butternut squash and increased the other ingredients accordingly. The only change I made wa...

Roasted the onion, carrots and garlic along with the squash. Combined all in a pan with the rest of ingredients and used my immersion blender from other reviews. Only roast garlic for about ha...

added a little cream cheese and little hot pepper like we do with our butternut squash soup. Very good with club crackers.

I thought this was great! I used almond milk instead of half & half and vegetable broth instead of chicken to make it vegan.

This is so yummy and so good for you, too! I added 1 large, chopped Granny Smith apple to the veggies I sautéed and because I am allergic to milk, I substituted coconut milk for the half and ha...

I made it as described, except I used my own veg stock instead of chicken and I used an immersion blender in the pot. I was expecting to spike my own bowl with sriracha, because I like some heat...

Delicious as written! I make this one a lot (though I'll confess I add salt). It's the perfect combination of sweet and savory flavor. I've also made it veganized (veggie broth for the chic...
