Paleo Butternut Squash Soup
---------------------------
3 lbs. (about 2 lg.) butternut or other winter squash
2 large unpeeled onions
1 small garlic bulb
1/4 C. olive oil
2 Tbsp. minced fresh thyme OR 2 tsp. dried thyme
3 to 3 1/2 C. chicken broth or stock
1/2 c. coconut milk
3 Tbsp. minced fresh parsley
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Fresh thyme sprigs

Cut squash into halves and seed them (Save seeds for another use). Place
cut side up in a 15 X 10" baking pan. Cut 1/4" off tops of onion and garlic
bulbs. Place cut side up in same baking pan. Brush with oil, and sprinkle
with thyme. Cover tightly with foil and bake at 350 for 1 1/2 to 2 hours
or until vegetables are very tender. Uncover and let stand until
lukewarm. Remove peel from squash and onions; remove soft garlic from
skins. Combine vegetables, broth and coconut milk. Puree in small batches
in blender until smooth; transfer to a large saucepan. Add parsley, sea
salt and pepper. Heat through, but do not boil. Garnish with thyme if
desired.
