Butternut Squash and Apple Soup

Butternut Squash and Apple Soup

Everything about this soup says “fall harvest,” from its warm golden color to its slightly sweet, fresh flavor. Once you’ve got the squash baked, it cooks fairly quickly.

Serves: 6
•    1 large butternut squash
•    2 tablespoons olive oil
•    1 large red onion, chopped
•    4 cups peeled, diced apple, any variety
•    1 vegetable bouillon cube
•    1 to 2 teaspoons grated fresh or jarred ginger
•    1 teaspoon ground cumin
•    1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
•    2 cups rice milk, or as needed
•    Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Halve the squash lengthwise with a sharp knife and scoop out the seeds and fibers. Place cut side up in a shallow baking dish and cover tightly with foil. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until tender. Set aside until cool enough to handle.

Heat the oil in a soup pot. Add the onion and sauté over medium-low heat until golden, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add the apple dice, 4 cups water, bouillon cube, and spices. Bring to a simmer, then simmer gently, covered, until the apples are soft, about 10 minutes.

In a food processor, puree the squash with 1/2 cup of the rice milk, until completely smooth. Transfer to a bowl.

Transfer the apple-onion mixture to the food processor and puree until completely smooth. Transfer both this and the squash puree back into the soup pot and stir together. Add the remaining rice milk, using a bit more if the puree is too thick.

Bring the soup to a simmer once again, then cook over low heat for another 5 to 10 minutes, or until well heated through. Season with salt and pepper. Serve at once, or let the soup stand off the heat for an hour or two, then heat through as needed before serving.

Feel free to leave out the pepper for a sensitive stomach.
