Preheat the oven to 425 degrees
Peel the butternut squash, remove seeds and cut into about 1 1/2 inch cubes. Peel the onion and chop into large pieces. Line a baking sheet with foil and oil the foil. Spread the squash pieces on one side of pan and the onion on the other side of pan. Drizzle the oil on the vegetables and bake for 45 minutes or until tender, tossing after 20 minutes or so.
Remove from oven and pour into a pot. Season with salt and pepper. Using a hand held blender, add about 2 cups boiling water and puree until smooth.
Adjust final seasoning with salt and pepper. Consistency may also be adjusted with additional boiling water. Garnish with plain yogurt or sour cream.

bmemmett 1 year agoReally good and it turned out perfect. I ended up using chicken broth and it was very flavorful even before salt and pepper. Then I added some whole milk just because. Thanks for the recipe.
