The name Butternut Squash Cappuccino caught my attention on a menu in a beautifully designed restaurant we were visiting, Brasserie des Heras in France. The pretty presentation of squash soup in a glass mug, with a little salty whipped cream, or frothed milk if you can do that at home and the addition of a little grated dark chocolate makes this simple soup something extra special and easy to do at home!

Cut squash in half, cook face down on sheet tray surrounded by a little water until soft, in a 400 degree oven. Scoop out squash when cooled down. Sauté onions and garlic, add squash and cover with broth. Simmer about 30 minutes. Puree with immersion blender, vita mix or blender. Taste soup and add in salt and white pepper to taste.
