How to Make Spicy Squash Soup


  1. First, bake the squash.
    Preheat your oven to 375F. Add a little water to the bottom of a baking
    dish or cookie sheet, and place squash halves face (cut side) down. Bake
    for 40 minutes or until the squash flesh is really soft. Let cool a
    little, then peel.

    In a large pot, melt butter and saute onion and garlic until soft. Add
    the chicken broth and potatoes, then bring to a boil. Cook until the
    potatoes are getting soft (about 15-20 minutes). Add the squash to the
    mix and mash until lumpy.

    Using a stick blender in the pot or move soup to a food processor, puree
    the mixture until smooth. Pour back into the pot, if you used a food

    Add seasonings, sherry and cream and stir through. Heat soup but don't
    let it boil. Once hot, time to serve.
  2. Top with a dollop of sour cream and diced green onions if disired (we do)
