Pumpkin bread and soup in Brookline and Coupe stoneware with squash.


  • 1 large butternut squash (cut in half)
  • 1 onion (roughly chopped)
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled whole
  • 2 potatoes (peeled and cubed)
  • 1 tsp turmeric 
  • 1 tsp ginger (freshly ground)
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder 
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp dried sage 
  • 3 Tbsp butter or vegetable oil
  • 3 cups vegetable broth, low sodium
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream or coconut milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 450F. Cut the butternut squash in half, remove seeds. Transfer both halves to a cookie sheet or large pan. Lightly grease the inside of the squash with butter/oil, sprinkle with salt, pepper and cumin.
  2. Bake for 25 minutes.
  3. Add onions and garlic, and bake for another 7-10 minutes. Remove from the oven. Squash should be browned on the outside and tender on the inside when poked with a fork.
  4. Scoop the flesh of the squash and transfer it to a large sized pot. Add the remaining vegetables (baked onions and garlic, as well as raw, cubed potatoes), all the spices and vegetable broth. 
  5. Bring to a boil, uncovered, then reduce heat and let it simmer (with the cover on) for 7-10 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat, let it cool slightly, transfer to a blender and blend until smooth.
  7. Season to taste with salt and pepper, stir cream through. 
  8. Ladle soup into Brookline Cereal Bowls, drizzle over a bit of cream if you’d like, and sprinkle with pepper and parsley if desired. Serve with homemade bread or pumpkin rolls
  9. Enjoy!
