Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400˚F.
  2. Halve and seed all your squash/pumpkin and place on a baking sheet (flesh-side up) into the preheated oven until soft. (35-40 minutes.)
  3. While your squash is baking you can prep all the other ingredients. Mince the garlic, peel and chop your onion, your carrot, and chop your celery.
  4. Heat a large pot over medium-high heat and add your avocado oil, the chopped onion and the garlic. Sprinkle with salt and stir occasionally until the onion is soft and the garlic is fragrant.  After a couple minutes add the remaining vegetables and 1 cup of broth continuing to stir until the vegetables are all soft.
  5. Remove all squash/pumpkin from the oven and scoop out the flesh into a large bowl.  Make sure to hold each squash and the pumpkin with a dish towel when scooping out the flesh to avoid burning your hands. Slowly add the squash and the remaining broth to the pot.
  6. Bring the squash soup to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to a simmer, and continue to cook for about 20 minutes.
  7. Purée the soup using an immersion blender or working in batches with a blender or food processor until you have a silky smooth soup. Careful it is very hot! Adjust salt/pepper to taste and if consistency is too thick add a little more water.  I added 2 cups.

To serve, ladle into bowls and top with 1 tsp coconut milk or cream.

Variation: This recipe is amazing with butternut and acorn squash as well.  Simply swap 1 medium butternut squash and one acorn squash in the recipe for the 2 Squash, the Sweet Dumpling and the Pumpkin.  Enjoy!
