Great Fall Recipes: Butternut Squash and Apple Soup

Butternut Squash. Photo Courtesy of Good HousekeepingOh yes, fall is here and the sweet veggies are everywhere. It’s one of my favorite times of the year for this reason! I love going to the farmer’s market and seeing all the squash, pumpkins, carrots, sweet potatoes, beets etc.

I really can’t say enough about sweet veggies. They are a great source of fiber, potassium, magnesium, calcium, vitamins A and C. Since they are sweet they also help curb sugar cravings. Try having a baked potato next time you’re craving something sweet and you’ll see what I mean.

Here’s my favorite butternut squash and apple soup:

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons organic butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 medium onions diced
1 medium butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into 1 inch pieces
4 apples, peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
1 quart chicken stock
1 sprig rosemary
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

1. Melt butter over medium heat. Add olive oil and onions, sweat the onions for about 5 minutes.
2. Add the squash and apples. Sweat those as well.
3. Pour the stock until the squash and apples are covered.
4. Add rosemary and simmer until squash is fork tender, about 15-18 minutes.
5. Remove the rosemary and let cool for 5 minutes.
6. Puree and enjoy!
