Makes: 4 servings
Ingredients
  • 4 cups roasted squash (I used a kaboucha squash but you can use any winter squash you like)
  • 1 large onion, minced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • Water or stock to cover squash
  • 1 zucchini, diced
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 2 celery sticks, diced
  • 1-2 large chorizo sausages, diced
  • Oil as necessary
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. In a large pot over medium-high heat, add a small splash of oil. Add chorizo sausage and cook stirring occasionally until browned on 2 sides, about 5 minutes. Remove from pot and set aside.
  2. Add onions to the same pot, adding more oil if necessary. Cook for 1 minute then add the garlic and cook for another 30 seconds. Add the roasted squash and enough water or stock to cover.
  3. Using an immersion blender, thoroughly blend the soup. (If you do not have an immersion blender you can also use a regular blender. Work in batches and make sure the soup is not too hot when you are blending it.)
  4. Bring soup to a simmer then add in the remaining vegetables. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes, or until the vegetables are soft but still have a slight crunch. Remove from heat.
  5. Season generously with salt and pepper and stir in chorizo.
Notes
To roast a squash, cut the squash in half, clean out the seeds and lay it on a parchment lined baking sheet. Roast in a 400 degree oven for 20-40 minutes, or until a knife can easily be inserted through the skin. Once the squash is cool enough to handle, cut the skin off and cut it into cubes for this soup.
