Before starting, preheat the oven to 450˚F. Wash and dry all produce. Peel, then cut sweet potatoes into 1/2-inch pieces. Add sweet potatoes, squash and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Cover baking sheet tightly with foil, then roast in the middle of the oven until veggies are tender, 20-22 min. Transfer roasted veggies to a medium bowl. Mash cream cheese and 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) into veggies until creamy. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
While veggies roast, heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add almonds to the dry pan. Toast, stirring often, until golden-brown, 4-5 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on them so they don't burn!) Transfer almonds to a plate. While almonds toast, halve mushrooms (leave smaller mushrooms whole). Strip 1 tbsp thyme leaves (dbl for 4 ppl) from stems, then roughly chop.
Heat the same pan over medium-high. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil and 1 tbsp butter, then swirl the pan until butter is melted. Add mushrooms and one-third of the thyme. (NOTE: For 4 ppl, cook mushrooms in 2 batches, using 1/2 tbsp oil and 1 tbsp butter per batch.) Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden-brown, 4-5 min. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer mushrooms to a plate.
Return the same pan to medium. Add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then swirl the pan until melted. Add leeks. Cook, stirring often, until slightly softened, 1-2 min. Add garlic puree and half the remaining thyme. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 min. Add cooking wine, then bring to a simmer. Once simmering, cook, stirring occasionally, until wine reduces slightly, 1-2 min. Sprinkle flour over top. Cook, stirring constantly, until leeks are coated, 30 sec.
Gradually whisk in 3/4 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl) until combined. Add broth concentrate and soy sauce. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a simmer. Once simmering, cook, whisking occasionally, until sauce thickens slightly, 1-2 min. Add mushrooms and spinach. Cook, stirring constantly, until spinach wilts, 1-2 min. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Remove the pan from heat.
Divide roasted veggie mash between plates. Spoon mushrooms, leeks, spinach and sauce over top. Sprinkle with almonds and remaining thyme, if desired.
