Directions

Roast the Squash

  2. Add garlic and cook for an additional minute. Add stock, oregano, and season with salt and freshly ground pepper. Simmer for about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
Blend It All Together
  1. Once squash has cooled down enough to handle, scoop out the flesh into a blender. Add broth, lemon juice and avocado. Blend until smooth. Correct the salt before serving.
