Roasted Acorn Squash Soup With Rosemary and Garlic

Roasted Acorn Squash Soup With Rosemary and Garlic created by EmmyDuckie

My mom and I had made stuffed Acorn Squash for Thanksgiving and there were a few left over in my fridge so I thought I'd try using them up. This turned out quite yummy and even my squash-suspicious husband enjoyed it!

ingredients

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.

    I'm sorry to say, but this was just okay for us. I used soy milk in place of regular milk, but followed the rest of the directions. The soup was quick and easy to prepare, but tasted very strongly of rosemary. It only made 3 servings for us.

    This is delicious! A little sweet, nicely herbal, and very rich. We really loved this one. I served it with some nice crusty bread and a glass of pinot grigio. It felt like a 5 star restaurant meal. Thanks for sharing.
