Roasted Garlic and Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

Roasted Garlic and Butternut Squash Soup Recipe




I just love butternut squash soup and tend to order it 2 out of 3 times (the other 1 time being a roasted tomato soup).  However, whenever I look at recipes to try to replicate at home, they always seem daunting in that you need to use a food processor in addition to the pot.  I think if I had the Cuisinart Blend and Cook Soup Maker I would be more inclined to attempt.  Do any of you own this lovely machine and have thoughts?    



Ingredients:1 medium butternut squash, halved, seeds removed
1 large leek, washed, green parts removed
1 tsp paprika
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
4-6 medium garlic cloves, skin removed
4 cups low sodium vegetable broth
2 tbsp fresh sage, washed and chopped
1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds
salt and pepper

Step by Step Instructions:
1. Preheat oven to 425
2. Slice squash in half and scoop out all the seeds
3. Rub squash with 1 tbsp olive oil and salt and pepper, place face down on a baking tray
4. Arrange leeks and garlic cloves around the squash and drizzle with remaining olive oil
5. Roast vegetables for 40-50 minutes, until squash is soft
6. Remove leeks and garlic and puree in a food processor until smooth
7. Add garlic/leek mixture to a medium sauce pan and simmer
8. With a spoon, carefully scoop squash flesh out and add to the pot
9. Stir mixture with a whisk, making sure to break up any large clumps of squash
10. Add veggie broth slowly, stirring constantly
11. Add sage and paprika
12. Cover and simmer on med-low heat for 15-20 minutes
13. Serve with a sprinkle of pumpkin seeds
