Butternut Squash Bisque

You can get good butternut squash throughout most of the fall and winter here in Texas, so this is a good staple for the few cold days we have. Serve with some crusty bread for a simple but filling dinner.
 
Ingredients:
1 large butternut squash
​3 cups stock (either vegetable or chicken)
​Olive oil or butter
​1 cup heavy cream
​salt and pepper to taste
​fresh grated nutmeg
 
Preheat oven to 400.
 
Cut butternut squash in half and rub with olive oil or butter.
 
Roast in oven until soft, about 25-30 min.
 
Scoop out squash and add to stock pot with stock. Bring to a simmer.

Use an immersion blender to blend soft butternut squash and stock together. Simmer 10 minutes.
 
Turn off heat. Add about a cup of heavy cream, and blend until soup is desired thickness. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
 
Serve with a dash of freshly-grated nutmeg and a splash of cream.
