Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cup Hazelnuts
  • 1 pound Winter Squash peeled, cubed (choose from acorn, pumpkin, or butternut)
  • 3 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 Leek with the white part, trimmed, finely chopped.
  • 4 Parsnip peeled, finely sliced
  • 1 medium Onion finely chopped
  • 2 cups Vegetable Broth
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 cup Milk of Choice we used almond milk
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 1 pinch Ground Pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line the hazelnuts on a baking dish and bake for 10-12 minutes until fragrant and roasted.
  • Remove from the oven and rub into a clean towel to peel off the skin of the hazelnuts. Set aside in a bowl and keep 1/4 cup aside to use as a topping to your soup later.
  • In a large saucepan, warm olive oil over medium heat and add the onions. Stir and cook shallots until fragrant and golden in color.
  • Stir in squash cubes, parsnip slices, white leek pieces, and stir fry the vegetables for 2-4 minutes until fragrant and evenly roasted.
  • Add vegetable stock, water, and 1 1/4 cup roasted hazelnut.
  • Cover the saucepan with a lid, bring the soup to a boil, then reduce to medium heat and cook for 20 minutes until vegetables are fork-tender.
  • Remove from heat, remove the lid and cool down 15 minutes, then add milk and blend in a high-speed blender until smooth. You can also blend the soup with an immersion stick blender.
  • Stir in milk, salt, and pepper, and serve hot with remaining hazelnuts on top of each bowl.
  • Serve with the reserved roasted hazelnuts on top, grated hard cheese, or a dollop of sour cream.

Storage

  • Store up to 3 days in the fridge in an airtight container or freeze and thaw in the fridge the day before.
