This is a recipe out of the Bay Area Vegetarian 1996 magazine I also
posted information about. Ihave not tried this recipe, but it comes
from a source that I respect. The recipe is from Millenium
restaurant, a fabulous VEGAN restaurant in San Francisco that serves
gourmet food that follows McDougall's precepts. Says so right on the
menu! I've eaten there twice and love it.
Saute onion, carrot, and celery in the sherry. When onions are soft,
add half the salt and pepper plus all the remaining ingredients.
Simmer until the squash is soft (approximately 45 minutes). Puree the
soup in a blender. Return it to the soup pot; simmer10 more minutes
to marry the flavors,and then adjust salt and pepper. Serve garnished
with cashew tarragon cream and slices of pear.
Cashew Tarragon Cream: Blend all ingredients in a blender. Start with
half the water, and add the other half as it blends (you may need a
little more than 2 cups). You are looking for the consistency of
heavy cram with no lumpiness.

I would assume that most of the fat in this dish comes from the
sauce, so you could play with that recipe a little or skip it
