    magpie diner's Note:

    Adapted from an Australian Women’s Weekly cookbook. Their version used kumara, which although we can find here, it isn’t as easy to find. Good use for a bumper crop of acorn squash in your garden. The lentils in this soup make it thick and creamy. I tried to add chives under the list of ingredients (just for garnish), but the recipe builder wouldn't accept it. Sorry reviewer #1 had such problems with it - not clear why you had to peel hot squash, when you start with the squash peeled and chopped. I upped the prep time based on your comments, although I had no problems doing all the chopping in 15 mins.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Warm the oil in a soup pot/dutch oven. Add in the onions and allow them to cook over medium heat until translucent (about 5-7 minutes).
    2. 2
      Add in the acorn squash, let that cook together for a few minutes along with the sage.
    3. 3
      Add in the broth followed by the lentils; stir well and bring to a boil.
    4. 4
      Once boiling, bring back down to medium heat, cover and allow to simmer for about 20 minutes, until the squash is soft.
    5. 5
      With the squash nicely cooked and the lentils cooked and starting to break up on their own, turn the heat off and blend until smooth (either in batches using a blender, or using an immersion blender).
    6. 6
      Garnish with some fresh chives, chopped or in a few long sprigs. A dollop of something creamy would be great as garnish too.

      15 minutes to prep?! Please enlighten us...how does one peel an acorn squash in 15 minutes? I was so excited to make this recipe (which I still haven't finished preparing -- after an hour of boiling the squash and then peeling the SUPER HOT peel off of it so I could perhaps eat dinner this evening sometime), but I'm bummed I chose it now.
