1 butternut squash (3 lbs)
1 1/2 large leeks, white parts only, split lengthwise, washed, and cut into 1-inch long pieces
1 1/2 cups Silk Creamer Original
1 1/2 cups Silk soymilk plain
3 cups water
salt and pepper to taste
fresh grated nutmeg
1/3 cup seeds or chopped and toasted nuts (pumpkin seeds, pistachios, walnuts, or hazelnuts work well) *optional garnish
1/2 cup non-dairysour cream (Tofutti) *optional garnish

Peel the squash. Remove the seeds and string, then cut into 2 inch chunks. Toss into a large pot. Add leeks, silk, and water. Salt generously and bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower heat to simmer and cook 35 minutes, or until squash is soft enough to mash.

Poor into a blender or food processor and puree until very smooth. You may need to do this part in batches. Leave room in blender for puree to rise. Always place a dish towel on the cover of the blender and hold down with your hand when you turn the blender on as the heat forces the top to want to pop off. Season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Return to pot and reheat if needed. This dish is best when very hot.

Ladle into bowls and garnish with Tofutti and a few seeds or nuts.
Serves 6

Tip: apples (tart is best, peeled, cored and cut into tiny pieces) work well for garnish too!

pumpkin seeds from your carved pumpkins
sea salt
water
1 TBL olive oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Rinse pumpkin seeds and remove any part of the pumpkin that remains. Measure pumpkin seeds. For every 1/2 cup of seeds, use 2 cups of water and 1 TBL of salt for every 1 cup of water. So, for 2 cups of seeds, use 8 cups of water and 8 TBL of salt. Bring seeds, water and salt to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to simmer for 10 minutes. On a cookie sheet, spread 1 TBL of olive oil to coat. Drain and spread the seeds on the oiled cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, tossing seeds half way through. Let cool before eating.
