Butternut squash soup with cinnamon

Serves 6

5 lbs butternut squash

1 quart chicken stock

6 stalks celery, roughly chopped

1 onion, roughly chopped

 2 tablespoons butter

2 cups heavy cream

powdered cinnamon



Sauté onion and celery in pan with butter until soft. Pour chicken stock into pan with celery and onion.

Peel butternut squash and remove seeds. Cut into quarters and place in large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil, and dust with a couple tablespoons sugar and cinnamon. Mix together well.

Put squash mixture on baking sheet and bake for half an hour in 450-degree oven. If a knife inserted into squash cuts through easily, it's ready. Take from oven and put squash in pan with celery, onion, and chicken stock. Bring to boil and let boil for 5 minutes. Turn off heat and let sit on burner to cool.

When cooled, put in a blender and blend until smooth. Put mixture back in pan on stovetop. Heat until hot. Add heavy cream. Heat through and serve with a dash of cinnamon on top.
