Tromboncino Squash Soup

5 lbs (uncooked) tromboncino squash or butternut squash

1-2 yellow onions

3 cubes vegetable bullion

drizzle of half & half or heavy whipping cream

olive oil

8-12″ rosemary branch



black pepper

red pepper flakes

8 cloves of garlic

2 bay leaves

cilantro (garnish)

plain yogurt (garnish)


Cut the squash into 6″ sections and split each one evenly down the middle.  Place all sections cut side up in glass baking dishes.  Cut onions into wedges and place in baking dish.  Drizzle all vegetables with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and freshly ground black pepper.  Bake or roast in the oven at 350-400 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour.  While baking, fill a stock pot with 2-3″ of water.  Add vegetable bullion cubes, rosemary, bay leaves, garlic, cumin, red pepper, & the ends of the onions.  Simmer on low until the squash is finished in the oven.  When the squash is cooked, remove it from its shell and place it in the stock along with the roasted onions.  Simmer this mixture, stirring and mashing often, for at least 15 minutes, preferably longer, to let the flavors marry.  When it’s done, stir in a good drizzle of half & half or heavy whipping cream and mix thoroughly.  Add salt to taste and adjust seasonings.  Remember to remove woody rosemary stalks and bay leaves before blending.  Ladle the chunky soup into a food processor or blender and puree.  It will take several batches to get it all so have a second pot ready.  When serving, add a couple of spoonfuls of plain yogurt to the center of the bowl and sprinkle with cilantro.  Great with a toasted bagel!

Rick Bayless: the celebrity chef who supports local farms 

 How can we support local farms?

Frequent farmers markets...“That’s the best support you can do,” says Rick. Consider this: food in the US tends to have traveled hundreds of miles from its point of origin to your plate. Think of all that packaging and the fossil fuels used in transport, plus the conventional agriculture methods used in production. Food at farmers markets tends to have traveled shorter distances and has been grown using environmentally friendly methods.

Participate in CSAs...In a CSA, farms allow consumers to buy shares in exchange for select produce every week. It gives the farms a consistent revenue stream, instead of having to depend on farmers markets. “It also forces you as the consumer to get to know ingredients that you might not buy at a farmers market,” says Rick. “So you get to have some new experiences, and it gives the farm the opportunity to count on you on a long-term basis.”
