    • 29.58 ml butter
    • 473.18 ml diced raw winter squash (3/4-inch, butternut, hubbard, acorn)
    • salt and pepper


    • 29.58 ml extra virgin olive oil
    • 118.29 ml diced onion (1/4-inch)
    • 59.14 ml diced celery (1/4-inch)
    • 59.14 ml diced carrot (1/4-inch)
    • 1 cinnamon stick
    • sea salt
    • freshly ground pepper
    • 907.18 g carton Progresso® chicken broth (4 cups)
    • 2.46 ml ground toasted coriander, if desired
    • 354.88 ml roasted winter squash (above)
    • 118.29 ml half-and-half, if desired*
    • 29.58 ml toasted pumpkin seeds
    • 118.29 ml Progresso® plain panko crispy bread crumbs, toasted light brown in saute pan over medium heat


    1. 1
      To make roasted winter squash: Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Heat butter over medium-high heat in an ovenproof sauté pan; add diced squash, salt and pepper. When squash begins to brown, place pan in oven. Roast for 15 minutes or until medium-brown on all sides. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Puree in food processor, or mash with potato masher or ricer. Measure 1 1/2 cups squash; reserve.
    2. 2
      To make soup: Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat until hot. Add the onion, celery, carrot and cinnamon stick; sauté until soft but not brown, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add the broth and the coriander; bring to a boil. Simmer for several minutes. Stir in reserved squash until smooth; simmer gently to let the flavors meld, about 10 minutes. Discard the cinnamon stick.
    3. 3
      Puree the soup using an immersion blender or in a blender until smooth. (The soup can be made ahead to this point, cooled, covered, and refrigerated for several days or frozen for about 1 month. It will thicken as it cools and may need thinning with broth or water when reheating.).
    4. 4
      Return the soup to the pan and reheat gently. Add the half-and-half. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper. Top each serving with pumpkin seeds and toasted bread crumbs.
    5. 5
      Tip *Depending on how rich you want it, or how cold it is outside, you can use cream, yogurt or mascarpone instead of the half-and-half.

      I liked that this didn't have cream cheese added to it. I didn't toast the coriander. Also didn't have a cinnamon stick so I just sprinkled a little cinnamon to it. I'm going to make this again.
