Directions

Combine butter, onion, garlic, celery, and carrot in large saucepan. Cook for 5 minutes. Add squash, apple, and broth. Bring to boil. Simmer for 10-20 minutes or until squash is soft. Puree. Add spices to taste.

Makes approximately four 2-cup servings, or 5-6 smaller ones.

*I think you could use EVOO in this, but the butter lends itself to the overall sweet-and-savoriness of the dish. Besides, in moderation, some butter can actually be a bit good for you! If in doubt, please read "Real Food: What to Eat and Why" by Kendra Planck. Yum!

**To make this vegetarian (or even vegan), use oil instead of butter, and vegetable broth instead of chicken.

Number of Servings: 4

  • Fantastic! Did not change anything, except to cook the pepper and salt into the soup. Going to be a favorite around our house! - 10/25/11

  • This turned out well but I did make a couple of changes. First I baked my acorn squash ahead of time. I also left the skin on my apples and processed them with the veggies before cooking. I added 1/2 chicken breast for some extra protein.I cooked it chopped w/ the veggies. It adds 55 cal per serv. - 9/25/11
