How to make squash soup

Cut the chestnuts and cook them in boiling salted water, with a bay leaf and rosemary, for about 15 minutes. Once ready, peel the chestnuts and set them aside.

Peel and chop the shallot and brown it in a pan with the oil and a few sage leaves. Add the diced squash, leave to flavor for a few minutes and then cover with vegetable broth or hot water and cook for 15 minutes, or until the squash is softened.

Add salt and pepper, add the chestnuts too, keeping some aside for decoration, and cook for a few more minutes. Remove the pot from the heat. Blend everything until smooth.

Add some nutmeg, and season with salt and pepper if necessary. Serve your squash and chestnut soup with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and with the chestnuts kept aside and crumbled.
