      Butter Nut Squash and Green Apple Soup


      • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped

      • 1 rib of celery, chopped

      • 1 carrot, chopped

      • 2 Tbsp butter

      • 1 butternut squash, peeled, seeds removed, chopped

      • 1 tart green apple, peeled, cored, chopped (squash and apple should be at a 3 to 1 ratio)

      • 3 cups chicken broth

      • 1 cup water

      • Pinches of nutmeg, cinnamon, cayenne, salt and pepper


      1. Set a large saucepan over medium-high heat and heat the butter for 1-2 minutes. Do not let it turn brown. Add the onion, celery and carrot and sauté for 5 minutes, taking care to turn the heat down if the vegetables begin to brown.

      2. Add squash, apple, broth and water. Bring to boil. Cover, turn the heat down to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes or until squash and carrots soften. Puree, and return to a clean pot.

      3. Add salt and spices to taste, and garnish with chives or parsley.

      Yield: Serves 4-6.
