  • then add the squash and 2 cups of corn.
  • stir and season with salt and pepper. cover and let vegetables cook for approx 10 minutes.
  • Now, pour in stock and milk and bring to a simmer. cover partially and cook for approx. 20 minutes, keep it from boiling over.
  • Next, preheat the boiler.
  • Melt the remaining butter and mix in the remaining corn kernels and spread on a rimmed baking sheet. season with more salt and pepper and broil about 3 inches from the heat for about 8 minutes, removing them to stir and turn over about 1/2 way through.
  • Let soup cool, then puree in batches in a food processor. reheat soup if desired and garnish with the toasted corn. This soup is even better as leftovers!

Notes

You can use any winter squash to make this soup, I used Acorn Squash and it came out great!
