Remove the squash from its shell.   Remove the inside of the sweet potato.  Put the pureed mixure into a soup kettle, add broth and puree till smooth.   Add vegetable broth a little at a time till its the perfect consistency.  It should be thick, but thin it with adding additional broth.  This is the quick , ez method.  You can also saute some sweet onion (1/2), clove of garlic along with some more herbs into the pot before you add the puree’d squash.  Just sautee a couple of minutes then add puree and broth.  Be careful not to add too much broth, do it slowly, you can always thin it out, but can’t thicken it if it’s too thin.
