DIRECTIONS

  • If you don't have any pre-roasted Thanksgiving leftovers --
  • Halve and scoop out the innards of 2 medium to large Acorn Squash. Roast them, cut side down in a 400 degree oven for about 45min or until tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from oven and allow to cool. When cool scoop out flesh and set aside.
  • Heat the ghee or oil in a deep sauce pan on medium heat. When warm add the onions, 4 cloves of garlic, rosemary, thyme, and salt.
  • Cook gently until the onions are translucent and just beginning to caramelize(about 8-10 minutes).
  • At this stage add your scooped out squash and gently mash it with a wooden spoon until it is soft and broken up and entirely incorporated with the onion, garlic and herbs.
  • Cook this mixture over medium heat for about 5 minutes or until squash is bubbling. Add the other two cloves of garlic, the broth and the milk.
  • Gently mix all. If it is too thick add a little more milk and adjust seasonings.
  • Allow this to gently simmer for about 5-8 minutes.
  • Turn off the heat.
  • Puree approximately half of the soup in a blender until smooth and add back to the pot. Mix thouroughly.
  • Serve piping hot with little cubes of gruyere scattered over the top.
