  • Cut squash in half horizontally. Scoop out and discard seeds. Place the squash, cut-side down, on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until tender, about 45 minutes. When cool enough to handle, scoop out flesh.

  • Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add carrot, celery and onion and stir to coat. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring frequently, until soft, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in the squash flesh, cumin, chipotle to taste and cloves. Add broth and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer and cook, covered, until the vegetables are very tender, 25 to 35 minutes.

  • Puree the soup with an immersion blender or a regular blender (in batches) until smooth. (Use caution when pureeing hot liquids.) Season with maple syrup, salt and pepper. Garnish each serving with a dollop of cream and a sprinkling of chives.

Tips

To make ahead: Refrigerate soup for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw, if necessary, and reheat before serving.
