Soup
  1. 1 large red kuri or other winter squash (4½ lb.), halved, seeds removed
  2. 1 tart apple, peeled, cored, and quartered
  3. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  4. 2 medium leeks, white parts only, sliced (2 cups)
  5. ½ teaspoon salt
  6. 2 pinches fresh ground black pepper
  7. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  8. ½ cup white wine
  9. 6 cups Vegetable Stock or low-sodium vegetable broth
  10. 1 bay leaf
Cider Crème Fraîche
  1. ⅓ cup crème fraîche
  2. 2 tablespoons apple cider or apple juice
Soup
  1. 1. Place squash (cut-side down) and apple quarters in large baking dish. Add 1 cup water, cover, and roast 35 to 40 minutes, or until squash is tender.
  2. 2. Let squash cool until it is easy to handle. Scoop squash flesh from skin; this should give you about 6 cups.
  3. 3. Heat oil in large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add leeks, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1 pinch of pepper; cook 3 minutes, or until leeks begin to soften.
  4. 4. Stir in garlic, then wine; cook 3 minutes, or until pot is nearly dry. Add squash, apple, stock, remaining 1/4 tsp. salt, remaining pinch of pepper, and bay leaf; bring to a boil.
  5. 5. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, uncovered, 20 minutes. Remove bay leaf, and purée with blender until smooth and creamy. Cook over low heat 15 minutes.
Cider Crème Fraîche
  1. 6. Whisk together ingredients in small bowl.
  2. 7. To serve, ladle hot Soup into bowls, and swirl with Cider Crème Fraîche.
