  • 1 medium butternut squash
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 teaspoons minced canned chipotle chiles in adobo
  • 1/2 cup sour cream


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Halve the squash lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Wash the seeds and reserve.

Step 2

Using 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, grease a glass baking dish. Place the squash in the dish cut-side down. Pierce the squash all over with a fork. Roast until very tender, 45 minutes. Let cool.

Step 3

Heat a large heavy pot over medium-high heat and add the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add the onions, carrots and celery and saute until just tender, 10 minutes. Add the garlic and saute for 2 minutes. Scoop the butternut squash flesh into the pot and stir. Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot and simmer until the vegetables are very tender, about 30 minutes.

Step 4

Meanwhile, heat a small pan over medium-low heat. Add the squash seeds and toast, stirring occasionally, until crunchy, about 30 minutes. Season the seeds heavily with salt. Set aside to cool.

Step 5

Cool the soup slightly and then puree in batches in a blender until very smooth. Return to the pot and keep warm over medium-low heat. Mix in 2 teaspoons of the chipotle.

Step 6

Mix the sour cream and remaining 1 teaspoon chipotle in a small bowl. Season the chipotle cream with salt and pepper.

Step 7

Transfer the bisque to bowls. Top each with a dollop of chipotle sour cream and toasted butternut squash seeds.
