Add onions to the squash in the soup pot and then pour in vegetable stock.
Heat the mixture in the soup pot on medium/low heat for approximately 50 minutes or until squash is soft (test with a fork).
Use a stand up blender or an immersion blender to puree the soup
Whip the cream in a large bowl until it holds its shape. Ladle the soup into serving bowls and top with a dollop of the whipped cream and a sprinkle of the chopped cilantro.
When using a stand up blender to puree the soup you can work in batches.
