Squash Potage Soup

Squash Potage Soup, Squash Potage Soup

(from the Angelica Home Kitchen Cookbook)

Everything I make from this cookbook is delicious, and so I pass on this simple and dependable squash soup recipe. It is a quintessential New England fall soup. I made a vegetable mushroom broth for the soup stock which gave it a real fullness.

2 tablespoon. olive oil
1 large onion
1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, peeled and minced
1 cinnamon stick
3 cloves fresh garlic, peeled and left whole
6 fresh sage leaves (to yield 1 tsp. minced)
1/2 cup apple cider or more to taste
3 pounds winter squash, (butternut, buttercup, or hokkaido work well) peeled, seeded, and chopped (to yield about 2 quarts)
1/2 cup carrots, peeled and sliced
4 cups water or vegetable stock

Warm oil in heavy -bottomed 3 quart pot. Add onions along with 1 teaspoon of salt. Stir occasionally, and cover on and off for 10 minutes so some moisture develops.
Add ginger, cinnamon, garlic, and sage. Cook for 5 more minutes.
Stir in apple cider and bring to a boil.
Add the squash, carrots, and 4 cups of water or vegetable broth. Bring to a boil, then lower heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes, or until the squash is soft and falling apart.
Remove cinnamon stick and puree with a handheld mixer until the mixture is creamy.
Add additional cider and salt and some freshly ground black pepper to taste.
