  1. Preheat oven to 400F and line baking sheet with parchment or foil.
  2. Cut the squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds and strings. Rub the surface with a little olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and roast on the baking sheet open sides up, until browned and tender -- 80-90 minutes. Let cool.
  3. Heat the 2 Tbsp olive oil and butter in a heavy soup pot on medium. Add the onion and 1/2 tsp salt. Saute for 5-6 minutes until the onions begin to brown. Add the cumin and coriander, stir for 30 seconds, then add the tomatoes and juices. Season with a few grinds of pepper, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Peel the roasted squash, or scoop out the flesh, and add it to the pot, breaking it up with a wooden or plastic spoon. Add the chicken broth, cover, and simmer covered for 30 minutes.
  5. Let cool and slightly puree in batches in a blender or food processor. Taste and add more salt or pepper as needed. Return the soup to the pot and stir over med-low heat until hot.
  6. Pour in to bowls and garnish with a spoonful of yogurt or sour cream and a sprinkling of the minced parsley.

    If preparing for a party, you can roast the squash up to two days in advance and refrigerate it. The entire soup can be prepared and refrigerated two days in advance, or frozen up to a month in advance.
