    1 whole garlic head, roasted - use 1/2 total
    1 tsp smoked paprika
    2 cups vertically sliced onion
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
    4 1/2 cups (1/2-inch) cubed peeled butternut squash (about 2 pounds)
    1/2 cup organic vegetable broth (such as Swanson Certified Organic)
    1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    1/4 teaspoon salt
