Recipe Ingredients for Butternut squash apple soup

1 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups chopped yellow onions (1 medium sized onion)
1 tablespoons mild curry powder
2 1/2 pounds butternut squash (1 large)
2 sweet apples, such as McIntosh
1 teaspoons kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 cups chicken stock (veggie or water will also work)
1/2 cup apple juice

Recipe Directions for Butternut squash apple soup

  1. Warm the butter, olive oil, onions, and curry powder in a large stockpot uncovered over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes, until the onions are tender. Stir occasionally, scraping the bottom of the pot.

  2. Peel, quarter, and core the apples. Cut into chunks. Either peel, cube the squash or see the above instructions on how I did it, which was cut the squash in half and roast on a baking sheet for 30-40 mins and then scoop out the flesh. Either way will do just fine.

  3. Add the squash, apples, salt, pepper, and 2 cups of chicken stock to the pot. Bring to a boil, cover, and cook over low heat for 20 minutes (if you cubed the squash add another 20 minutes), until the squash and apples are very soft. Process the soup through a food mill fitted with a large blade, or puree it coarsely in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade, or a blender.

  4. Pour the soup back into the pot. Add the apple cider or juice and enough water to make the soup the consistency you like; it should be slightly sweet and quite thick. Check the salt and pepper and serve hot.
