Ingredients

  • 2 tbs butter
  • 2 medium butternut squash
  • 2 large apples peeled, chopped
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 2 tbs brown sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ teaspoon cinnamon
  • teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cups chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • squash seeds optional garnish
  • nutmeg optional garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Cut the ends off of the squash, scoop out the seeds. I save the seeds and bake them and use them as a garnish.
  • Place them skin side down on a baking sheet.
  • Bake until fork tender, about 45 minutes to an hour.
  • Once the squash has cooled enough scoop out the flesh
  • In a med. sauce pan, saute' onions in a couple tablespoons of butter, until softened.
  • Add the squash, apples, broth, salt, cinnamon, brown sugar, and pepper.
  • Bring to a boil and simmer covered until apples are soft.
  • In batches, pour the soup into a blender, or food processor (I use my vitamix), and process until smooth. Alternatively, you can use an immersion blender
  • Once it has all been pureed, return to a clean pot and heat until warmed.
  • Ladle into bowls and top with baked squash seeds and a dash of nutmeg. 

Notes

If you don't want to transfer the soup to a blender, you can use an immersion blender.
If you really want to bring it up a notch, use whole nutmeg grated with a microplane zester.
Swerve Brown works great in this recipe as a sugar substitute.
