This is a great fall or winter soup. Very impressive for dinner parties! To roast garlic, cut off the top of a head of garlic & drizzle with a little olive oil. Wrap in foil & bake for about an hour at 350°F.

- 3 lbs butternut squash, peeled, seeded & chopped
- 8 garlic cloves, roasted
- 1⁄2 bunch sage leaf, plus additional for garnish

- Puree with an immersion blender or in a food processor.

This was made using squash that had been roasted. The garlic was cooked along with the onion. The soup was pureed using my immersion blender. Overall a nice creamy, fall soup.
A nice creamy soup and I was in need of a recipe to use up squashes and my sage plant. Hubby liked the garlic flavor
