Fall is my favorite time of year and I switch from eating lots of salad to soup. Two days ago I read through several soup recipes using Butternut Squash and decided to come up with one of my own. It was delicious and is now in my favorite recipe notebook. If you are looking for some good tasting soup recipes using Fall vegetables this will satisfy.
Butternut Squash Soup with Apples
1 butternut squash peeled and cut into cubes
1 medium apple, peeled and sliced
1 medium or 1/2 of a large red onion
1 Tblsp fresh ginger, grated
1 Tblsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp ancho chili pepper
1 cup turkey or chicken broth
1 15oz can of fire roasted tomatoes
2 medium fresh tomatoes cubed
1 1/2 cups fresh coconut milk ( So Delicious is one brand)
Heat oil in large soup pot. Add onion and saute’ until it begins to brown, then add ginger and spices toasting them until they become fragrant, under 1 minute. Add Turkey broth and scrape up browned bits on bottom of pot. Then add squash, apples and tomatoes. Simmer until squash and apples are soft. Stir in coconut milk and make sure soup is warmed through. Remove from heat and puree preferably with a blender stick or wait until it cools slightly to blend in conventional blender. Return soup to the pot and season with salt and pepper to taste.
