Substitutions and Notes:
  • Chicken stock: You can use any homemade stock, such as beef or vegetable, if you prefer. If using store bought broth or stock, ensure it's labeled gluten free.
  • Dairy free: In place of the butter you can use coconut oil, palm oil or Homemade Lard.
  • Melt butter in frying pan. Add onions, garlic and ginger and cook until just starting to turn brown.
  • Add chicken stock to a large pot. Add cubed squash and onion mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the squash is cooked, about 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and cool until safe to handle. Add to a blender, and blend until smooth. Adjust seasoning if desired.
  • Reheat to bring to a hot serving temperature.

Serve with a drizzle of cream and Roasted Pumpkin Seeds you can make from the seeds of the squash, if desired.
