Rapunzel’s hazelnut soup

Rapunzel’s favorite dish that Mother Gothel makes. Here is the Disney version :

2 lb butternut squash, seeded and cut into 6 sections
1 lb parsnips, peeled and roughly chopped
1 green apple, peeled, cored, and quartered
1 medium brown onion, thinly sliced
4 cups of chicken stock, divided
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon cumin
3-4 sprigs fresh thyme
Salt and white pepper to taste
1 cup raw hazelnuts (for topping)

but… The version I prefer (no, I do not do fruit in my soup, thank you very much) is this: Creamy hazelnut soup

some ground hazelnuts
50 g butter
2 shallots, thinly sliced
1 medium leek, white only, chopped
1 parsnip, peeled and chopped
1 spoon flour
1 L vegetable stock
220 g crème fraîche
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste
handful of chopped hazelnuts, roasted
