Combine the shallot and the garlic in a nonstick saucepan and cook over low heat until translucent, adding a little water if necessary to prevent scorching. Add the squash and chicken broth and simmer until the squash is soft, about 20 minutes. Transfer to a blender or food processor and puree. Return the soup to the pan and place over medium heat until heated through. If desired, add protein powder just before serving.
