Steps to make Simple Creamy Butternut Squash Soup:
  1. BAKING THE SQUASH: Preheat oven to 375F. Cut squash in half lengthwise, scoop out the pulp and seeds, place flesh side down on your sheet pan or baking sheet, and bake for 45 minutes or so until a fork or knife pierces all the way through the thickest part of the squash like a hot knife through butter.
  2. NOW FOR THE SOUP: Put the butter and oil in a 4 or 5 quart pot and turn the heat to slightly higher than medium. When the butter is completely melted, add the aromatics (all the veg other than squash) and saute until the onions are translucent and the leeks and onions just begin to brown in parts (about 5 minutes).
  3. Add the thyme, butternut squash, stock, salt, pepper, and sugar and stir gently a few times to evenly distribute all the ingredients. Turn the heat up to medium high and bring soup to a gentle boil for 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Turn the heat down to medium low and simmer, with the lid on askew, for 25 minutes (or until a fork pierces the carrot pieces VERY easily - the carrots need to be this tender in order to get a really smooth, silky consistency to the final product), stirring occasionally and adjusting the heat down if necessary. (If you can scrape stuff off the bottom of the pot, your heat's too high.)
  5. Stir in the cream, adjust seasoning if needed, and simmer, uncovered, for another 5 minutes.
  6. Blend the soup until it's a smooth, velvety consistency. If you have a stick blender, that's the easiest way to go, but if you're using a regular blender, blend 3 cups at a time, starting at a very low setting for the first 5 seconds to avoid splatter and then turn up to the puree setting for 20 seconds or so.
  7. Enjoy!

I'd like to think this is the most elegant version of butternut squash soup out there. I used red squash (kabocha squash) for this squash soup, but you could use butternut squash which happens to be my favorite kind of squash, because. Squash, potatoes, carrots, celery, and onion cook up quickly into a thick, velvety soup that's ready in about an hour. Something I whipped up off the top of my head, with things I had on hand. Super easy, quick, and a great way to use squash.
