- 2 pounds of butternut squash, peeled and diced
- 1 medium-sized onion, chopped
- 2 carrots, peeled and chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 4 cups of vegetable broth
- 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1/2 cup of heavy cream (optional)
- Fresh sage leaves for garnish (optional)
1. In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and garlic, and sauté for about 5 minutes, until they become soft and translucent.
2. Add the diced butternut squash and chopped carrots to the pot. Cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. Pour in the vegetable broth and season with cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 20-25 minutes, or until the squash and carrots are tender.
4. Use an immersion blender or a regular blender to puree the soup until smooth and creamy. If using a regular blender, be sure to let the soup cool slightly before blending and then reheat it on the stove.
5. If you prefer a creamier soup, stir in the heavy cream at this stage and heat the soup gently.
6. Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed.
7. Serve the fall squash soup hot, garnished with fresh sage leaves if desired.
