Ingredients

  • 3 medium carrots peeled and chopped
  • 2 medium parsnips peeled and chopped
  • 1 2-pound red kuri squash (or other favorite squash such as pumpkin or buttercup), seeded and sliced into 1-inch thick slices
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil plus more for roasting vegetables
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 12 fresh sage leaves

For garnish:

  • Crème fraîche or sour cream
  • ¼ pound bacon cooked and crumbled (optional)
  • Fresh thyme leaves

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  • On a baking sheet, arrange the carrots and parsnips.
  • On another baking sheet, arrange slices of squash.
  • Season the vegetables with salt, pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil on top.
  • Roast for about an hour or until they are soft and tender.
  • When the vegetables are ready, remove from the oven and peel the skin off of the squash.
  • Add all of the vegetables to the pot with the vegetable broth and bring to a boil.
  • Then reduce heat and let simmer for about 20 minutes.
  • Strain the soup ingredients from the broth, reserving all of the broth.
  • Pulse the cooked vegetables in a food processor or with an immersion blender, gradually adding in the broth until forming a smooth purée of desired consistency. If it is not thin enough for you after adding in all of the vegetable broth, you can add in water a little at a time and purée again until the desired texture is achieved.
  • Then add salt and pepper to taste.
  • To make the sage chips, heat the 2 tablespoons of olive oil and butter in a skillet on medium-high heat.
  • Once hot, add in sage leaves.
  • Let the leaves fry for about 5 minutes before lifting them out of the pan with a slotted spatula and setting on paper towels to soak up the excess oil. They should be stiff when you take them out of the pan.
  • Immediately sprinkle sea salt on the chips – if you wait too long the salt won’t stick.
  • To serve, spoon a dollop of crème fraîche or sour cream onto each bowl of soup.
  • Garnish with crumbled bacon (if using), sage chips, and thyme.
