In Dutch oven, bring stock, onion, carrot, squash, sweet potato, orange, bay leaves, cinnamon stick and salt to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand for 1 hour.

Discard orange, bay leaves and cinnamon stick. In batches in blender or food processor, purée soup until smooth; strain if desired. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 3 days; reheat until steaming.)
