Directions

  1. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in leeks and onions, and cook until the onion softens and turns translucent, about 5 minutes. Add potato, squash, carrots, apple, and chicken stock. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the vegetables are soft, about 20 minutes.
  2. Carefully puree the soup in batches in a blender, or use a stick blender to puree the soup right in the pot. Once the soup has been pureed, return it to the pot and stir in wine and cream. Season with nutmeg, salt, and pepper; simmer gently for 5 minutes. Ladle into bowls and garnish with chopped chives.

Wow, this was great. I was craving a soup like the Butternut Squash soup at Bruegger's Bagels. I think this outdoes theirs. I admit I did make a few changes/additions. I used a sweet potato for the regular potato, apple cider for the wine and added a dash of ginger and cumin. Oh, and I used a Honeycrisp apple (very similar to Granny Smith but not quite as tart) instead of the Granny Smith. I will definitely be making this one again. A tip for handling the butternut squash-microwave whole for a few minutes, let cool then cut in quarters, seed, peel and cube.

I made this soup, leaving out the cream & using a hand-held blender. It was awesome! I made another recipe the next week & was so dissapointed that I had to find this again & write a review. The apple & carrots are the key to making this soup tasty and hearty.

Great base - experiment with spices how you like. Can substitute apple cider vinegar for wine. Cinnamon is a great fit, with the apples & the squash.. as are nutmeg and ground cloves. Tastes better after a few days. I make ahead and freeze in jars to take to work :)
