Favorite Winter Soup from the Chef of Mother's Downtown Kitchen

Butternut Squash Soup

1 butternut squash, peeled and diced, seeds removed
1/2 sweet onion, diced
2 carrots, peeled and diced
2 celery stalks, diced
3 sprigs thyme
1 sprig rosemary

2 tablespoons olive oil
3 cups water
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander seeds
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Sweat the first six ingredients in a large saucepan over medium heat with oil. Once the vegetables begin to soften add the water and bring to a simmer. Allow to cook for approximately 30 minutes or until all veggies are cooked through. Remove from heat, add maple syrup and spices. In small batches blend until smooth in the blender. Serve hot and garnish with toasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds) and walnut oil and fresh cracked black pepper. (Photo shown here with garnish of creme fraiche, sage and Aleppo pepper.)
