How to make it

  • Heat the stock in a two quart saucepan.
  • When the stock reaches a simmer, add the parsnips and carrots and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • Add the squash and continue simmering for another 7 or 8 minutes.
  • While these vegetables are cooking, heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan.
  • Sauté the garlic for a minute or two. Don't let it burn.

  • Working in batches, purée the cooked vegetables from both pans, along with the stock, in a blender until smooth.
  • Pass the puréed soup through a fine sieve back into the original sauce pan.
  • Reseason to taste and heat until just simmering. Cook about 5 minutes.
