Roast in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes until the squash is tender and lightly browned.
While squash is roasting, soak hemp seeds in vegetable broth or water.
In a skillet over medium heat, saute onion in 1 Tbsp hemp oil until fragrant.
In a large soup pot combine the onions, roasted squach, jalapeno, ginger, milk, hemp seeds and the broth/water they are soaking in. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to medium low.
