  4. Bring to a simmer.
  5. Cover the pot with a lid and cook until the squash is soft and tender, about 20 minutes.
  6. Remove the thyme from the pot.
  7. Use a stick blender to puree the squash in the pot. A blender can be used instead if you don’t have a stick blender. Only blend small batches of the soup at a time.
