Calabaza Soup with Limburger Cheese

Calabaza Soup with Limburger CheeseThis recipe for calabaza soup with Limburger cheese was created by Chef Guillermo Pernot.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 pound calabaza or butternut squash, peeled, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 Spanish onion, chopped
11/2 quarts rich chicken stock
1/2 cup heavy cream
6 slices Limburger cheese, 1/4 inch thick, at room temperature
3 tablespoons pumpkin seeds (pepitas), toasted
2 teaspoons pumpkin seed oil

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (205°C).
  2. In a shallow baking pan, toss the squash with the oil and salt. Roast 20 minutes or until tender.
  3. In a soup pot, combine the squash, onions, and chicken stock. Simmer until onions are very tender, about 20 minutes.
  4. Purée the soup with an immersion blender until smooth. If too thick, add additional chicken stock. Adjust the seasonings and add the cream.
  5. Serve hot in soup bowls. Top each serving with a cheese slice, pumpkin seeds, and a drizzle of oil. Serve immediately.
