Don't have sherry vinegar on hand? Apple cider vinegar is a good substitute.

Creamy Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  2. 1 large leek, thinly sliced and cleaned (about 1 cup)
  3. 1 3- to 4-pound butternut squash, peeled and roughly cubed
  4. 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  5. 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  6. Kosher salt, to taste
  7. 3 tablespoons dry sherry, plus more to finish
  8. 2 to 3 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  9. 1 cup whole milk
  10. 2 tablespoons heavy cream, plus more for garnish
  11. Sherry vinegar, to finish

Directions

  1. Melt the butter in a medium stockpot or dutch oven over medium-low heat. Add the leeks and sweat, stirring occasionally, until softened but not yet browned, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the butternut squash, nutmeg, pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, for another 5 minutes.
  3. Add the sherry to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until reduced slightly, then add enough stock to just cover the vegetables. If 3 cups isn't sufficient, make up the difference with water.
  4. Turn the heat up to high and bring to a boil. Then reduce the heat to keep it at a bare simmer, and simmer uncovered for about 20 minutes, or until the squash is fork-tender.
  5. Add the milk and 2 tablespoons cream and blend until smooth, either using an immersion blender or by carefully transferring to a blender in batches.
  6. Season to taste with salt, pepper, sherry, and sherry vinegar.
  7. Ladle into bowls and drizzle with cream.
