Butternut Apple Squash Soup
This is a perfect winter soup.
I decided to reblog it from last year because it is so good
If you use a tart apple add one to two teaspoons of brown sugar
One large diced onion
Two cloves of garlic
Three tablespoons butter
Three packages of cut up butternut squash
Two diced and peeled apples
48 ounces of chicken or vegetable broth
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
One can of drained and washed black beans
One cup of half and half
Saute the onion and garlic in the butter till soft
Add the butternut squash, apples, broth and seasoning.
Bring to a boil.
Cover the pot, turn down the heat to low and cook the squash till it is soft.
Let it cool and pour into a blender in batches till smooth
Pour back into the pot
Add the half and half and beans
Simmer on low till hot
Adjust the salt and pepper
I served this with a grilled sausage grinder.
When I served this for Thanksgiving, I omitted the black beans and put popcorn on top for garnish.
