Apple and Winter Squash Soup


  • 1 Tbs. unsalted butter

  • 1 TSFF red onion, diced

  • 1 TSFF Butternut, BonBon, NGCR or Sunshine squash (about 2 pounds), peeled, seeded, and chopped

  • 4 TSFF red or golden apples, peeled (or not), cored, and coarsely chopped

  • 2 tsp. coarse salt

  • 1½ tsp. ground cumin

  • ½ tsp. ground coriander

  • ½ tsp. ground ginger

  • ¼ tsp. cayenne pepper

  • ¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 cups homemade or low-sodium canned chicken or vegetarian stock, skimmed of fat

  • Finely diced apple tossed in lemon juice, for garnish

  • Jalapeno pepper, thinly sliced, for garnish

  • Low-fat sour cream, for garnish


  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, and cook until it begins to soften, about 4 minutes. Add squash, and cook, stirring occasionally, until it softens, about 10 minutes. Add apples, salt, cumin, coriander, ginger, cayenne, pepper, stock, and 2½ cups water (just enough to cover). Bring to a boil.

  2. Reduce to a simmer, and cook until vegetables are very soft, about 30 minutes.

  3. Being careful of hot splashed: Puree in batches with an immersion blender, in a food processor, or a blender until smooth, and return to saucepan over low heat. Thin with additional water if necessary. Serve hot, garnished with chopped apples, jalapeño, and sour cream, if desired.
