Creamy Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Cardamom

Serves 10 to 12
Time 50 min
This rich, creamy soup is terrific for feeding a crowd. We like it with a swirl of cream or crème fraîche added to each serving, but you can also stir that directly into the soup pot if you prefer, or omit it entirely for a lighter dish.

Method

Preheat oven to 425°F. Divide squash, onions and thyme between 2 large baking sheets. Drizzle with oil, sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and pepper and toss to coat. Spread vegetables out in a single layer.

Roast, stirring once or twice, until tender and lightly browned, 20 to 30 minutes.

Transfer vegetables to a large pot and add broth, wine and cardamom. Simmer for 10 minutes over medium-high heat.

Use an immersion blender to purée soup.

Alternatively, let the soup cool slightly and carefully purée in batches in an upright blender. Stir in remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. When ready to serve, return soup to a simmer. Ladle into bowls and swirl about 2 teaspoons cream into each serving.
