Serves: 6-8

  • 1 large white onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 3 BOU chicken cubes
  • 8 cups butternut squash (1 large squash); peeled, seeded and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons grass-fed butter
  • 1 cup raw shelled pumpkin seeds
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh sage
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt
  • pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 325. Lined a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large soup pot, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions, ½ teaspoon salt and some black pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until onions are soft about 5-6 min. Add garlic and cook until onions begin to caramelize, another 5-6 min.
  3. Add 6 cups of water and the BOU cubes to the pot. Using a wooden spoon, scrape up brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Add the butternut squash and bring the water to a boil then lower heat to medium-low. Stir, then cover and cook until the squash is very soft, about 25 min.
  4. Melt the butter in a small pan over medium-low heat. Let it bubble until it is golden brown about 12 minutes. In a bowl, toss the brown butter, pumpkin seeds and sage plus a pinch of salt and pepper. Spread the seeds in an even layer on the baking sheet. Bake for about 20 min until golden brown, stirring a few times.
  5. Carefully transfer contents of the pot to a blender and puree until smooth. Adjust seasoning.
  6. Garnish with pumpkin seeds and extra fresh sage.
