For the Soup

Instructions

Make the Butternut Squash

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut each squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Drizzle the flesh with 1 tbsp of olive oil and roast flesh side up for about an hour or until tender. Remove from oven and let cool slightly.

When the squash is almost done, heat the butter and olive oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Peel and dice the onion and add to the pot. Let cook until tender and beginning to turn translucent, about 10 minutes.

While the onion cooks, finely chop the garlic and fresh herbs. After the onions have cooked for 10 minutes, add the garlic and herbs to the pot and cook for 2-3 minutes. Next, add the chicken broth and squash flesh–(with a spoon, scoop out the flesh of your cooked squash and add it to the pot). Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer on low, covered, for about 20 minutes.

Next, blend the soup until smooth and creamy. The easiest way to do this is with an emersion blender so that you don’t have to remove the hot soup from the pot. However, if you don’t have one, you can blend the soup in a blender in batches.

Serve with toasted sourdough bread, enjoy!

*if you are cooking for 1, you can freeze this soup in a Tupperware. Take it out the night before you want to eat it to thaw

Ingredients

For the Slaw
For the Slaw Dressing
For the Avocado Crema

Instructions

For the Butternut Squash

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line one sheet tray with parchment paper. Peel the butternut squash, scoop out the seeds, and, cut the squash into 1-inch cubes. Place on the sheet tray and season with oil and spices of your choice (I like to use a mix of smoked paprika, chili powder, and curry powder). Bake for 40-45 minutes on the bottom rack, or until crispy, tender, and beginning to char.

For the Slaw

Combine all the dressing ingredients into a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Taste for seasoning then toss in a large bowl with the slaw. 

For the Crema

Add all the ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth. If the mix is too thick you can add a little water to thin. Taste for seasoning.

To Assemble

On your tortilla layer the slaw, then roasted squash, and top with avocado Crema. Enjoy!
