  • 11 medium sized butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cubed (about 4 cups)
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme

seasoning with salt and pepper. 
Serve the soup with a dollop of ginger cream and a sprinkling of toasted pumpkin 
seeds. Finish with a bit of chopped parsley.
