Serves: 4

  • 2 cups butternut squash, cubed
  • 4 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1 leek, sliced (white and light green)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger, ground
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1/4 cup mirin
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, grated
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • pinches salt
  • 4 sprigs cilantro, for garnish
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, toss the cauliflower and squash with the ground ginger, a tablespoon of the olive oil, and sesame oil. Place in a baking dish and roast until tender, 25-30 minutes.
  2. In a stock pot over medium heat, warm the remaining olive oil and butter until melted, add the leeks and cook until translucent, about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Add the grated ginger and stir. Mix in the squash, cauliflower, stock, a pinch of salt, and mirin. Stir. Allow to simmer for 25-30 minutes.
  4. With an immersion blender or regular blender, blend until smooth. Add the cream and blend until mingled. Garnish with cilantro or croutons.
