Acorn Squash Soup RECIPE COURTESY OF GUY FIERI Level: Easy Total: 2 hr 40 min Prep: 20 min Inactive: 1 hr Cook: 1 hr 20 min Yield: 8 to 10 servings Ingredients 3 whole acorn squash, approximately 8 cups when cooked 6 shallots , 1 cup diced, 3 left whole and peeled 6 garlic cloves, peeled 3 tablespoons olive oil, plus 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon salt 1 tablespoon pepper, freshly cracked, plus more for seasoning 1 stick unsalted butter, in all 4 cups chicken stock, low-sodium 1/4 teaspoon cayenne 1/4 teaspoon white pepper 1 teaspoon sage, dry 1 teaspoon savory 1 cup heavy cream 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 1/3 cup grated Parmesan Directions Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F Cut the squash in half on the equator and remove the seeds with a spoon. Cut a flat spot on each end so the squash will sit flat. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and arrange the squash, cut side up. To 3 of the squash halves, add a peeled shallot and to the other 3 add 2 garlic cloves on each. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and season with 1 tablespoon each of the salt and freshly cracked pepper. Roast in the hot oven until very tender and starting to caramelize and collapse, approximately 1 hour. Remove from oven and when cool enough to handle, remove the squash from the skin. Reserve the roasted shallots and garlic with the squash. Can be done ahead. In a large Dutch oven, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium-high heat and when the butter is starting to foam, add the raw diced shallots and saute until they are starting to caramelize, about 5 to 6 minutes. Deglaze with 1/2 cup of the chicken stock and stir to remove any fond. Reduce the heat to medium-low and add in the reserved squash, roasted shallots and garlic and then the remaining chicken stock. Stir to combine, then puree with a stick blender. The mixture will be very thick. Add in the cayenne, white pepper and the herbs. Stir in the cream and Worcestershire sauce and heat slowly over medium-low heat. When the mixture comes to a slow simmer, mix again with the stick blender and stir in 1/4 cup of the Parmesan and turn heat to low. Serve with a fresh crack of black pepper, a nice drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil and a light sprinkle of the remaining Parmesan. Ladle into soup bowls and serve.

  1. Butternut bisque is one of my faves. I think I'll roast off an acorn squash with it and call it, " Roasted Bacon Buttercorn Bisque". LOL. 😊
    Basically make it just like you did but use a little crispy bacon to garnish with and use some of the drippings to sautee the shallots.
    Maybe add a pinch of brown sugar. Does that sound good???
