Step 1

Melt butter in large pot over medium-high heat. Add squash, onions, carrots, and thyme. Sauté until squash begins to soften and brown, about 10 minutes.

Step 3

Working in batches, puree soup in blender until smooth; return to same pot. Stir in 1/3 cup chives and nutmeg. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with additional chives if desired.
