- 1 large butternut squash
- 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- 2 apples, peeled, cored and cubed
- 1 sweet onion, diced
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ginger
- 2 teaspoons sea salt
- 3-4 cups vegetable broth
Preheat the oven to 415°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment.
Slice the squash lengthwise. Remove the seeds. Rub the squash with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, place cut side down on the baking sheet. Roast for 45 minutes or until a knife slices through easily.
Once the squash is cool enough to handle, scoop the flesh out from the skin and place in a medium bowl. Discard the skin.
In a large pot, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the apples and onion and saute for about 5 minutes, or until soft.
Add the cooked squash, cinnamon, ginger, and sea salt to the pot. Add the vegetable broth, starting with 3 cups. Add an additional 1 cup if you want a thinner soup.
Simmer for 10 minutes. Use an immersion blender to pureé the soup, or transfer to a blender carefully to pureé until smooth.
Serve immediately. Top with roasted nuts, a sprinkle of cinnamon, or kale chips.
Alternate options: You can also roast a sugar pumpkin for this recipe and turn it into a Roasted Pumpkin Soup. Freeze for up to three months.
