Author: Olga Miller


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 shallots , chopped
  • 1 medium acorn squash , seeded, roasted, and peeled (about 2½ cups mashed)
  • 2 cups gluten-free chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Kosher or fine sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  • In a medium heavy-duty soup pot, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chopped shallots and cook until they are starting to caramelize, about 5-6 minutes.
  • Mash the roasted acorn squash. Add the mashed squash, stock, maple syrup, cinnamon, ½ teaspoon of salt, and ¼ teaspoon of pepper. Bring to a gentle boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly. Puree with an immersion blender.
  • Adjust the seasoning and serve in shot glasses garnished with a sprinkle of black pepper. If you don’t mind an additional ingredient, I suggest garnishing each glass with a rosemary sprig.
