"This soup is so easy to make and tastes so good. You can blend it smooth or leave it chunky. You can top with a dollop of sour cream or plain Greek yogurt if you wish. I created this recipe after my nephew's food service class served a very similar version at their 'Big Night' dinner."

Directions

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Pour enough water into a baking dish to be about 3/4-inch deep. Lie squash halves into the water with the cut side facing up.
  3. Roast in preheated oven until a fork easily pierces through the flesh, 45 to 50 minutes; Remove from oven and flip squash; let cool enough to handle.
  4. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Saute shallots in hot butter until softened, 5 to 7 minutes.
  5. Pour 3 to 5 cups chicken stock into the pot; stir. Add apples to the stock; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the apples are tender, 20 to 30 minutes.
  6. Use a fork to scrape the flesh from the butternut squash, finishing with a spoon to get the last bits away from the skin; add to the simmering stock. Add remaining 3 cups stock to the pot, bring mixture to a simmer, and continue to cook until everything is heated through, 5 to 10 minutes.
  7. Puree soup with an immersion blender until smooth.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • When leaving the soup chunky, I cut the pieces small and use more stock.
  • In place of chicken stock, I like to use Better than Bouillon(R) Reduced Sodium Organic Chicken Base from Costco(R). I use about 2 heaping spoonfuls, but adjust to your taste.
