    lazyme's Note:

    I found this recipe in Bon Appetit magazine and it sounds delicious. I love butternut squash and am looking forward to making this. Even though there are lots of steps, they sound simple enough and it can be made a day ahead.

      We loved this soup! I sprinkled a little nutmeg on top just before serving. Great, and very filling, winter soup! Thanks for posting.

      I think pumpkin soup (which is what we would call this) is almost Australia's national soup. It's made in almost every home, pub and restaurant. This version was outstanding and will be made again soon. I also oven roasted my butternut pumpkin and I used my own home made chicken stock. I served this for lunch and added poached pumpkin ravioli and served grated parmesan cheese at the table. This made a very delicious and filling lunch on a freezing cold winter's day. The soup was outstanding before I made those additions though.

      I like this recipe as it is not as sweet as most of them out there. I modified some things with what I had on hand. I cut the squash in half, coated with olive oil and roasted in the oven at 350 for an hour, then peeled and cut it up. I used pureed garlic from a jar instead of the whole clove and I was out of chicken broth so I used beef. It turned out really well, an excellent way to use all that garden squash!
