RECIPES:

Heirloom Winter Squash Soup 

INGREDIENTS:

4lbs mixed winter squash – peeled, seeded, then cut into 1” cubes

1/4 cup Enzo Olive Oil

1/4 cup unsalted butter

1ea large onion, finely chopped

4ea large garlic cloves, sliced thin

10 cups vegetable stock

1TBSP minced fresh thyme

1 TBSP minced fresh sage

1 cup heavy cream

1TBSP Bee Local Single-Origin Honey

Jacobsen Pure Kosher Sea Salt 

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 425F
  • In a large mixing bowl, toss cubes of squash with olive oil and sprinkle with Jacobsen Kosher Salt.
  • On a large sheet pan, add squash in one even layer (you may need more than one sheet pan) and then cook in oven for 20-30 mins until squash begins to brown around the edges. Remove and let cool.
  • Melt butter in a large Le Creuset dutch oven over medium heat. Then add onion and garlic and sauté until tender – seasoning to taste with Jacobsen Garlic Salt. Add the herbs and sauté for one more minute.
  • Then add squash and vegetable stock to the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 10-15 mins.
  • Then, working in batches, puree the soup in a strong blender (such as a Vitamix) and return the soup to the same pot. At this point add more or less liquid to the puree as necessary to achieve a texture that is thick but smooth, and still a bit loose. Keep in mind that you will add cream in a moment.
  • Stir in the cream and the honey, bring to a simmer, season to taste with Jacobsen Kosher Salt.
  • At this point the soup can be chilled if necessary and reheated to serve.
  • **Protip: garnish with toasted pumpkin/squash seeds, fried sage, crème fraiche, and a drizzle of chili oil.
