Roasted Squash and Rosemary Soup

Rosemary compliments winter squash very well.

1 medium winter squash, cut in half and seeds removed

Olive oil

2 sprigs fresh rosemary

¼ c. chopped onion

2 stalks celery, chopped, or ¼ – ⅓ c. peeled, chopped celeriac

1 medium-large carrot, chopped

3 c. vegetable broth

Salt and pepper

2 Tbsp. sour cream or crème fraiche

Preheat oven to 350.

Place the squash, scooped side up, in a baking dish with 1/2” water.

Drizzle each half lightly with olive oil and place a rosemary sprig in each well. Bake for 30-45 minutes, until tender. Cool slightly, then peel off the outer skin and large-chop the squash. You should end up with about 4 - 5 cups; if you have more than that, save extra for another dish.

Remove leaves from rosemary stems, and set aside.

In a soup pot, saute the onion, celery and carrot in 1 Tbsp. olive oil for about 3-5 minutes or until the carrots have started to soften. Add the squash and broth; simmer on low for 15 minutes, or until the vegetables are soft. Season with salt and pepper.

Puree in a blender until smooth and then blend in the sour cream or crème fraiche. Return to the pot and re-warm. Mince reserved rosemary, and add some/all, to your taste.

Serve with a little extra dollop of sour cream or crème fraiche in each bowl if desired. A couple of croutons sprinkled on top are good too!
