Squash is perfect for soup. The tasty sharpness of Canadian Old Cheddar cheese is a great complement to its subtle creaminess.
Cheddar comes in many varieties: Mild, medium, old, and extra-old.
In a heavy saucepan, sauté onion in butter until it's transparent. Add broth, squash and spices. Salt and pepper to taste.
Heat on medium-low, then reduce to simmer for 15 to 20 min, stirring occasionally. Purée mixture. Add milk and reheat, but do not boil. Remove from heat. Stir in Old Cheddar cheese until melted.
If fresh squash isn't available, you can always use commercially packaged puree.
