"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Ingredients:  
1 to 1 1/2 lb. butternut squash, halved and seeded
1 to 2 celery stalks
1 to 2 carrots (large)
1 onion, peeled and quartered or chopped coarsely
1 large clove garlic
2 tsp. sea salt
4 cups chicken broth (low sodium)
1/2 cup coconut milk (optional)

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 400. Place squash, flesh side down in a (vegetable oil sprayed) roasting pan and pierce several times with a fork. Add carrots and celery and drizzle with a small amount of canola or olive oil. (1-2 T). Roast for 40-45 minutes, until squash is cooked. In the meantime, saute the onion and 1 clove garlic, chopped, in a large pot with about 1 T. olive oil, for about 5 minutes. Add the scooped out squash, carrot and celery (cut these quickly so they're in smaller pieces for the pot) to the pot and the broth and salt. Simmer for 20-25 minutes, so the flavors blend. Using a hand blender, puree the soup until smooth and creamy, Add coconut milk and stir. If the soup is too thick, add hot water or more broth (warmed), 1/2 cup at a time, until desired consistency.

Personal Notes:
I also sometimes add some fresh minced ginger, about 1/2 Tablespoon, to make it more of an Asian-style soup. You can also add about 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar. 1-2 boiled potatoes can be added also to the soup to give it more creamy consistency and a different flavor. Try it both ways and see which one you prefer!
