  • 3 pounds precut butternut squash (or about 2 small-medium whole butternut squash, cubed and peeled)
  • 2 medium yellow onions, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon dried rubbed sage
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon butter, or other cooking fat
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic (about 6 cloves)
  • 6 cups vegetable or chicken stock

Optional toppings

  • roasted pepitas, Mexican crema or sour cream, fresh herbs


  • Pre-heat oven to 400°F. Line two large baking sheets with aluminum foil and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine sage, salt, celery seed, thyme, black pepper and smoked paprika.
  • In a large bowl, add butternut squash, onions and olive oil. Toss to combine.
  • Add the spices and herbs to the butternut squash mixture and mix together until all the vegetables are evenly coated.
  • Evenly distribute the vegetables onto the two prepared baking sheets. Roast in the oven for 45 minutes. Set aside.
  • In a large pot over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add and cook for 30 seconds, until fragrant.
  • Add the roasted vegetables and stir to thoroughly mix with the garlic. Add 2 cups of stock.
  • Using an immersion blender, blend the vegetables carefully until completely smooth. You can also use a regular stand blender to blend the veggies in two batches. Be careful to not overfill the blender since veggies will still be very hot.
  • Add the remaining 4 cups of stock and blend again (or whisk thoroughly). Cover and cook for 5 more minutes.
  • Serve with roasted pepitas, Mexican crema or sour cream and fresh herbs if desired.
