Quick Facts

Servings: 12
Prep Time: 20 min.
Cook Time: 25 min.
Total: 45 min.
Serve this satisfying soup throughout fall and winter. It's easy to make and, with holiday spices, makes a delightful start to the Thanksgiving meal.

Ingredients

  • 3 butternut squashes
  • 3 kabocha or hubbard squashes
  • 4 leeks
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 8 cups stock or water*
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp sea salt*
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Directions

  • Clean and halve each squash from top to bottom. Remove seeds. Lay squash halves face down and cut across in 1/2-inch (1.25cm) slices. Cut the skin off each piece and then chop into 1/4-inch (0.5cm) chunks. Clean leeks and cut on the diagonal in 1/4-inch (0.5cm) pieces. Set aside one cup.
  • In a large stock pot, saute the rest of the leeks in oil for 1 minute. Add the squash and saute for another 5 minutes. Add the stock or water and bring to a boil, then turn flame down and let simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Add oats and simmer 5 minutes. Add salt, pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon and let simmer 5 to 10 minutes, until the squash is soft. Puree in a food processor until very smooth. Press soup through a fine-meshed sieve if a smoother texture is desired. Transfer soup back to pot and keep warm.
  • In a small skillet, saute the remaining 1 cup (180g) of leeks in a little olive oil, scatter over warm soup, and serve.

* Allergy notes: People following a corn-free diet should avoid iodized salt since it contains dextrose, which should be avoided by those allergic to corn. If you are allergic to soy, be sure the broth you choose is soy-free, as broths frequently contain hydrolized vegetable protein from soy.
