Butternut Squash Soup

My co-worker brought this into work for Soup Day and it was so delicious I had to ask for the recipe. I’ll be making this at Thanksgiving but also whenever I want something light, flavorful and substantive enough to be a meal. I made some very minor tweaks for my taste. As a side note, this soup is vegan but tasty enough for even the most voracious omnivore!

Butternut Squash Soup

2 Tbsp   Olive oil
4 cups yellow onion (about 3 large onions)
1 T Tbsp curry powder (your choice, but I used red curry powder)
5 lbs Butternut Squash
1½ lbs sweet apples (about 4), peeled, cored and cubed – golden delicious or honey crisp work well
2 tsp kosher salt
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 cups water
2 cups good apple cider or juice

Cut the squash in half, remove the seeds and roast until tender (in a preheated, 400 degree oven for about 45 minutes). Scoop the flesh out.

Warm 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.

Peel, quarter, and core the apples. Cut into chunks.

Add the squash, apples, salt, pepper, and 2 cups of water to the pot. Bring to a boil, cover, and cook over low heat for 30 to 40 minutes, until the squash and apples are very soft. Puree the soup (in batches) in a blender or a food processor fitted with a steel blade.

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.
