    Things To Grab

    • Large bowl
    • Large roasting pan
    • Blender or food processor
    • Large saucepan


    1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Toss squash, carrots, shallots, garlic, oil and butter in a large bowl. Arrange vegetables in a single layer in a large roasting pan. Roast for 30 to 35 minutes or until vegetables are golden brown and softened, stirring once halfway through.

    2. Add ½ cup broth to baking pan and scrape up any browned bits. Return to oven and roast for 5 minutes more or until liquid has reduced and vegetables are glazed.

    3. Puree half of the squash mixture and 2 cups broth in a blender or food processor until smooth; transfer to a large saucepan. Puree remaining squash mixture and the water in the same manner; add to saucepan. Stir in cream, maple syrup, vinegar and ¼ tsp. nutmeg. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat, adding additional broth, if needed, to reach desired consistency. Season with salt.

    4. Swirl sour cream into each serving and sprinkle with pepitas and nutmeg, if desired.
