salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1

1

3
cups

Directions

In a large sauce pan, heat the olive oil then add the onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are translucent.

Add the cumin, thyme, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine.

Add the squash and stir to coat. Cook over medium heat for approximately 10 minutes or until squash has begun to brighten in color.

Add the chicken stock and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer. Continue to cook until squash is tender and easy to mash with a fork.

Remove the pot from the heat. Using a hand-held blender, purée soup - be careful of splashes - the soup is very hot!

Once puréed, add butter, brown sugar, and heavy cream. Adjust for flavor with salt, pepper; soup can be thinned with additional hot stock.

Serve hot. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream, if desired.
