2 garlic cloves
A few sprigs fresh thyme
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 yellow onions, diced
1/2 cup white wine
8 cups vegetable broth
1 bay leaf
Salt and pepper
1/3 cup cider vinegar
Preheat oven to 350°F. Cut squash in half, remove seeds, and roast cut-side-down with garlic and thyme inside. Roast about 60 minutes or until soft. Scoop out flesh and set aside, along with the garlic and thyme. Add butter to a pan set over medium-high heat; add onions and roasted garlic and saute until soft. Add scooped squash to pan and stir, then add wine to deglaze. Reduce heat slightly and add broth and bay leaf, then simmer for 10 minutes. Remove bay leaf and puree in a food processor; season with salt and pepper and cider vinegar to taste. Serve immediately.
