Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

My friend recently had some soup at one of Disney's hotels for
an event. She said it was called "Roasted Butternut Squash Soup"
and had almost a sweetness to it. I'd love to see if any of you
have a recipe like this. Thanks all!

This isn't the Disney recipe perhaps, but it is sweet and absolutely delicious, jkath. Compliments of the chef at the Fort Worth Boat Club...hmmm...who actually does hail from Orlando....

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

2 butternut squash
4 oz maple syrup
Salt and freshly-ground black pepper and cinnamon, to taste

1 Tbsp. canola oil
1 medium white onion, diced
1 leek, white part only, diced
3 garlic cloves, sliced
2 sweet potatoes, peeled, diced

1 thyme sprig
1 cup dry Marsala wine
1 1/2 quarts water
1/4 Tsp. nutmeg
1/2 Tsp. cinnamon
Salt and freshly-ground white pepper, to taste
2 cups milk
Toasted pumpkin seeds, for garnish
Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish


Roasted squash: Split squash in half lengthwise, remove seeds, brush with maple syrup and sprinkle with a little salt, pepper and cinnamon. Roast covered for 1 hour at 375 degrees or until soft.

Soup: Heat canola oil, add onion, leek and garlic and saute for 5 to 7 minutes until onion is translucent. Add sweet potatoes and thyme and stir. Add the roasted squash meat (not skin) and stir. Add wine, water, nutmeg and cinnamon. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes until vegetables are soft.

Puree in food processor until smooth. Put soup back into pot and whisk in milk and remaining maple syrup. Pour into serving bowls and garnish with toasted pumpkin seeds and chopped parsley.

I found the first recipe online - supposed to be a recipe from Disney World. The other recipe is one that I really love - very much a comfort food!

Butternut Squash Soup
Boma, Animal Kingdom Lodge
2 tablespoons Butter
1 each Garlic Cloves
1 each Onion, chopped
1 teaspoon Cumin, ground
1 teaspoon Coriander, ground
1 pound Butternut Squash, cut in chunks
2 teaspoons Curry Paste, red
2 cups Vegetable Stock
2 cups Milk
4 tablespoons Sour Cream
2 each Fresh Lemons, juiced
To taste -- Black Pepper and Salt
To taste -- Cilantro Sprigs

In a large pot, heat the butter. Add the onions and garlic and cook until soft.
Add all the spices, lemon juice, and curry paste.
Add squash and cover with the stock.
Simmer until squash is cooked.
Puree the soup until smooth and add the salt and pepper to tastes.
Return to the heat and add the milk and sour cream. Do not boil.
Garnish with the cilantro sprigs.

Squash Apple Bisque
1 Onion, chopped
2 cloves Garlic, minced
2 tb Butter
1 1/2 lb Peeled butternut squash, cut in small cubes
4 Sweet apples, peeled and diced
1 c Walnuts, chopped
2 c Apple cider
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 ts Ground allspice
1/4 ts Ground cinnamon
Pinch of ground cloves
4 c Chicken stock
1/2 c Dark brown sugar
Heavy cream as needed to thin soup to desired consistency
Whipped cream for garnish
Walnuts, chopped for garnish

1.In a large pot, cook the onion and garlic in butter until soft, stirring occasionally.
2.Add the cubed squash, apples, walnuts, cider, salt, pepper, allspice, cinnamon, cloves and enough stock to cover. Bring the mixture to a boil and simmer, partially covered, 1 hour or until squash is tender.
3.When squash is tender, in batches, puree half the bisque in a blender or food processor until very smooth. Return to a the remaining bisque and add brown sugar. Stir to dissolve sugar. If desired, thin to desired consistency with cream.
4.Serve warm with walnuts and whipped cream.
**Note** This bisque can all be pureed to create a more smooth and creamy consistency. I like to do only half so there is the creaminess, but also texture.
