    BarbryT's Note:

    This velvety soup pairs the gentle flavor of sauteed leeks with sweet, roasted squash. Topped with a dollop of sour cream and a few caramelized apple croutons, it embodies everything cozy about autumn.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the squash, cut side down, on a baking sheet and bake until tender, about 40 minutes. Let cool slightly and gently scrape or cut squash away from skin (delicata skin is edible, but not tasty in this dish). Set aside.
    2. 2
      Melt butter in saucepan over low heat. Add leeks and thyme and stir occasionally until soft and brown, 10-15 minutes. Stir in the stock and the squash and simmer over medium heat for 20 minutes. Using an immersion hand blender, puree the soup directly in the pot until smooth. (Alternatively, puree the soup in batches in a standard blender or food processor).
    3. 3
      Season with salt and pepper & top with sour cream and caramelized apple croutons
    4. 4
      To make the croutons:.
    5. 5
      Peel and core apple and halve lengthwise. Using a mandoline or a very sharp knife, cut apple into very thin slices. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread one layer of apple slices on top. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake slices for 20 minutes at 350 degrees until crisp.
    6. 6
      Transfer to cooling racks and let cool completely.

      Delicious! I doubled the thyme for more intense flavor. Will definitely make again.

      Really enjoyed making this soup, & the croutons really brought the soup to life, & can see using them on other things as well! A GREAT SOUP that I plan on making a number of times during the cold weather months! [Tagged, made & reviewed as a PRESSIE in the Aus/NZ 12 Days of Christmas Recipe Swap]

      I had a very nice lunch today! I couldn't find Delicata squash so used butternut. I cut the recipe in half. I loved the apple croutons! Thanks for a memorable recipe!
