Ingredients

  • 3

    cups peeled, diced butternut squash (about 1 small squash)

  • 2

    cups thinly sliced carrots (4 medium)

  • 3/4

    cup thinly sliced leek or chopped onion

  • 1

    tablespoon butter or margarine

  • 2

    14 1/2ounce cans reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • 1/4

    teaspoon ground white pepper

  • 1/4

    teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1/4

    cup half-and-half or light cream

  • Creme fraiche or dairy sour cream (optional)

  • Toasted pumpkin seeds (pepitas) (optional)

  • Fresh tarragon sprigs (optional)

Directions

1. In a large covered saucepan cook squash, carrots, and leek in hot butter over medium heat about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add broth. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 25 to 35 minutes or until vegetables are very tender. Cool slightly. 2. Place one-third of the squash mixture in a food processor or blender. Cover and process or blend until almost smooth. Repeat with remaining squash mixture. Return all of the mixture to saucepan. Add white pepper and nutmeg; bring just to boiling. Add half-and-half; heat through. If desired, garnish each serving with creme fraiche, pumpkin seeds, and/or fresh tarragon.
