Butternut Squash with Parmesan

Butternut Squash with Parmesan: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 10

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbs unsalted butter
  • 1 large Spanish onion, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 3-inch piece Parmesan cheese rind
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 butternut squash (about 1 1/2 pounds each), peeled, seeded, and chopped into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 Tbs grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 fresh sage leaves, diced
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley

Directions

  • Melt the butter in a large stockpot over medium heat. Add the onion and celery and sweat until tender, about 4 minutes.
  • Add the stock, Parmesan rind, and bay leaves and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, partially cover, and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Add the squash and simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes, until the squash is tender.
  • Remove the Parmesan rind and bay leaves; reserve the rind for another use.
  • Puree about one quarter of the soup in a food processor or blender until smooth.
  • Return the puree to the pot and stir in the grated Parmesan, sage, salt, nutmeg, pepper, and cayenne. Simmer for 2 minutes to heat through.
  • To serve, ladle the soup into bowls and top with chopped parsley.
