Roasted Apple and Butternut Squash Soup

We will now be posting recipes to make eating locally even easier! For this time of year, apples and butternut squash are popular food items at the farmers market. We have posted a recipe allowing you to enjoy these two foods together in a soup! What could be better than a yummy and hot soup to keep you from freezing this winter?

Roasted Apple & Butternut Squash Soup
1 ½ lbs. (1 large) butternut squash, peeled & seeded
1 large granny smith apple, peeled & cored
½ large red onion
1 Tbl. mild curry powder
1 cup water
1 cup apple cider
olive oil
salt & pepper

3 Tbsp. heavy cream

Preheat the oven 425 degrees. Dice the squash, apple and onion into 1 inch cubes. Evenly distribute the cubed ingredients onto a sheet pan. Toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast at 425 degrees for 20 – 25 minutes or until tender.

Scoop the roasted mixture and any juices into a large stock pot with the curry powder, water and cider. Pulse the mixture with an immersion blender until desired texture is achieved. Try to avoid over blending. If it’s like baby food, then you’ve over blended. You might need to add more water if the mixture is too thick. Cook the soup over medium heat for 10 minutes to allow the flavors blend and is the desired temperature to serve. Season with salt and pepper and a small amount of heavy cream to taste. Makes roughly 4 cups of soup. Authors Note: If you don’t own an immersion blender, ladle the vegetables and water into a food processor in two batches. Pulse each batch until smooth and pour it into the stock pot. Continue with the rest of the directions.
