Butternut Squash & Green Apple Soup

A little off topic but Ive been on such a soup kick lately - probably because its been so terribly cold. I just wanted to share one of my favorites with you.

 

It's quick and easy to make!

 

May I introduce - Butternut Squash & Apple Soup

 

 

Butternut Squash Apple Soup Recipe

  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 4-6

Ingredients

  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped 
  • 1 celery rib, chopped
  • 1 carrot, chopped 
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 butternut squash, peeled and chopped, seeds discarded 
  • 1 tart green apple, peeled, cored, chopped 
  • 3 cups chicken stock or broth 
  • 1 cup water
  • Pinches of nutmeg, cinnamon, cayenne, salt and pepper

 

1 Heat a large thick-bottomed pot on medium-high heat. Melt the butter in the pot and let it foam up and recede. Add the onion, carrot, and celery and sauté for 5 minutes. Lower the heat if the vegetables begin to brown.

2 Add the butternut squash, apple, broth and water. Bring to boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes or so, until the squash and carrots have softened.

3 Use an immersion blender to purée the soup, or work in batches and purée the soup in a standing blender.

4 Add pinches of nutmeg, cinnamon, and cayenne. Add salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with BACON! I add in a little Sriracha for a little kick of spice.
