Since butternut squash and apples are both fall favorites, we thought it'd be tasty to combine the two to make an extra-comforting soup. Our Butternut Squash & Apple Soup is an easy twist on the classic butternut soup recipe you've made all your life. The chopped apple and bit of cinnamon add the perfect touch of spice and sweetness.

What You'll Need:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen cubed butternut squash, thawed
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 apple, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
What To Do:
  1. In a large soup pot over medium heat, melt butter and cook squash, onion and apple for 8 to 10 minutes, or until squash begins to soften.
  2. Add chicken broth, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and pepper; bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to low and simmer 30 minutes or until squash is very soft.
  3. Pour into a blender and puree the soup until smooth. Careful, it will be hot! Place back in pot and stir in half and half. Heat for 5 minutes or until heated through.
Notes

If you have an immersion blender, this would be a great time to use it rather than pureeing in a blender.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

An apple is a very surprising ingredient to see in a soup, but I really think it does a great job of bringing out the natural sweetness of the squash. When using a standard blender for soups like this, I would highly recommend holding a folded towel over the top, and do it in small batches. If your soup is very hot, the steam that is created can pop the lid off.

Yummy and comforting, creamy and flavorful! I hate cutting up butternut squash because it's so hard to cut through. I always am scared of an accident. Using the frozen squash that's already cubed is a great idea.
