Ingredients



  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 2 medium carrots, diced

  • 1 large leek, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced

  • 1 large pear, cored and diced

  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped

  • 1” piece fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped

  • 20 oz (about 4-5 cups) butternut squash, cubed in ¾” -1” pieces

  • 8 cups vegetable broth

  • 1 cup raw cashews, soaked in water for at least 4 hours

  • ½ cup sage leaves

Directions


1. In a large saucepan or pot heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium. Add carrots and leeks and sauté until softened, 6-8 minutes. Stir in pear, garlic, and ginger and cook, stirring, 2 minutes more. Add butternut squash and broth, bring to a simmer, and cook until all the vegetables are completely soft, about 15 minutes.

3. In a small skillet heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil over medium. Add sage leaves and fry briefly until they turn a darker green color, about 30 seconds. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

5. To serve, ladle soup into bowls and drizzle with cashew cream. Top with a sprinkling of paprika and a few sage leaves.
