Add butternut squash, vegetable stock and Parmigiano-Reggiano rind. Heat until mixture is just simmering, then turn heat to low and cook gently for about 20 minutes, partially covered, until vegetables are soft and tender.Remove rind from saucepan, transfer soup to blender or food processor and add most of the grated cheese, reserving about 25g (1oz) for garnishing. Blend soup for 15-20 seconds, until completely smooth. Return it to saucepan and add milk. Stir thoroughly and reheat until piping hot. Taste and adjust seasoning.Meanwhile, toast slices of French bread, sprinkle remaining Parmigiano-Reggiano on top and grill until melted. Ladle soup into warmed bowls, then top each portion with one piece of French toast. Sprinkle with fresh parsley or thyme and a little extra ground black pepper, then serve.Cook’s tip: You’ll need roughly 500g (1lb 2oz) of butternut squash when peeled and deseeded. If you have any left over, simply roast it until tender to serve as a vegetable with another meal. To store the soup, cool it quickly, then refrigerate for up to three days, or freeze for up to three months.
