Recipe Directions for Pumpkin-Acorn Squash Soup

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut pumpkin and squash in half lengthwise, cutting through stem and bottom ends. Reserve seeds for roasting. Place pumpkin and squash halves, cut sides up, in an alumninum foil-lined shallow pan.

  2. Microwave 2 T butter in a microwave-safe bowl at HIGH 25 seconds or until melted; stir in 1 T honey (or agave) and 1/4 t. salt. Brush cut sides of pumpkin and squash with butter mixture.

  3. Bake pumpkin and squash at 400 degrees for 45 minutes or until tender. Let cool completely (about 15 minutes). Scoop out pulp, discarding shells.

  4. Melt remaining 2 T butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion, and saute 5 minutes or until tender. Add thyme; saute 1 minute or until fragrant.

  5. Sir in broth and pumpkin and squash pulp. Increase heat to medium-high; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and let cool 10 minutes.

  6. Process soup, in batches, in a food processor or blender until smooth. Return soup to Dutch oven. Stir in half-and-half, next 4 ingredients, and remaining 1 T honey and 1/4 t salt. Cook, over low heat, stirring often, 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve immediately.
