2 tablespoons of good olive oil
2 medium onions, quartered
1/2 tsp. sea salt and pepper
1 cup of broth (vegetable or chicken)

Slice squash lengthwise and place, cut side up, on cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Drizzle oil over squash and sprinkle with thyme. Place garlic and onions around squash, and sprinkle salt and pepper over squash.
Bake until squash is tender, about one hour. Remove from oven and scoop squash from skin. Discard skin.
