Ingredients

    1 large butternut squash (about 1 1/2 pounds of pulp or 680 grams)
    3/4 cup chopped onion
    1 clove garlic, pressed
    1 apple, cored and diced
    2 tsp unsalted butter
    2 Tbsp whole wheat flour
    1 tsp curry powder
    1 tsp ground nutmeg
    4 cups low sodium vegetable broth, divided
    1 Tbsp organic (lower sodium) tomato paste
    1/2 cup evaporated skim milk
    1/2 tsp sage

Directions

Prepare Squash by cutting in half and placing in a glass microwave dish with about an inch or so of water. Microwave for 10-15 minutes or until softened. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat; saute onion, garlic and apple until onion is translucent. Add flour, curry powder and nutmeg and continue to cook until apple is tender. Place squash in a blender along with skillet ingredients; add 1 cup of broth and puree until smooth. Pour contents into a large saucepan or dutch oven. Add remaining broth, tomato paste, evaporated milk and sage. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then reduce heat and simmer for 3-4 minutes before serving.

Makes seven 1 cup servings. 1 cup is a perfect side portion. For main entree, serve 1 1/2 to 2 cups! Very filling and delicious!
