Ingredients

  • 1 (about 2 pounds total) butternut squash, halved lengthwise, seeds removed
  • Olive oil for rubbing squash
  • Salt and ground black pepper for seasoning squash
  • 2 tablespoons butter or olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup Hazelnut Flavored COFFEE-MATE® natural bliss® All-Natural Coffee Creamer
  • 2 tablespoons toasted, finely chopped hazelnuts*
  • Fresh thyme for garnish (optional)

Directions

PREHEAT oven to 400° F. Arrange butternut squash in a 13 x 9-inch baking pan, skin-side-down. Rub flesh with a little olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Top with thyme sprigs, if desired.

BAKE for 45 to 50 minutes or until tender. Cool, then scoop flesh out of squash.

MELT butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion; cook, stirring frequently, for 4 to 6 minutes or until soft. Add garlic; cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add broth and cooked squash; bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring occasionally, for 12 to 15 minutes. Stir in Coffee-mate. Remove from heat.

TRANSFER mixture to food processor or blender (in batches, if necessary); process until smooth. Return to saucepan. Serve warm topped with toasted hazelnuts and fresh thyme.

*To toast hazelnuts, place in a dry skillet over medium heat, shaking pan or stirring occasionally, for 10 to 15 minutes or until fragrant. While nuts are still warm, wrap them in a kitchen towel and rub vigorously to remove the skins. It’s okay if a few skins cling to the nuts.

Cook’s Tip: 15 ounces butternut squash puree or 1 can (15 ounces) LIBBY’S® 100% Pure Pumpkin may be used in place of fresh squash.
