Welcome the fall and winter seasons with this flavorful soup.
Roasted Butternut Squash and Apple Soup
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 pounds butternut squash, halved and seeded
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 large onion (about 8 ounces), cut into 1-inch pieces
3 apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 tablespoon light or dark brown sugar
3 tablespoons minced ginger (about one 2-inch piece)
1½ quarts vegetable or chicken broth
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1½ teaspoons sea salt
pinch freshly ground black pepper
½ teaspoon fresh thyme
Preheat oven to 375°F. Pour the oil over the cut sides of the squash. Place squash cut side down on a parchment or foil-lined baking sheet. Place in the preheated oven and roast 30 to 40 minutes, or until a paring knife can easily pierce the skin of the squash. While the squash is cooking, put the butter into a large stock pot set over medium-high heat. Once the butter has melted, add the onion and sauté for about 8 minutes, or until softened. Stir in the apples and sugar; sauté an additional 12 minutes, or until the apples are soft. Add the ginger and sauté until tender, about 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the roasted squash, broth and spices. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce heat so that the mixture is just simmering. Let the soup simmer for about 1 hour. Strain the soup, reserving solids and liquid separately. Put half of the liquid and then half of the solids into the jar of your Cuisinart® PowerEdge® 1000 Watt Blender. Run on High for 25 seconds; remove and reserve. Add the remaining liquid and solids and repeat. Serve immediately.
