Butternut Squash Soup

November 27, 2011 at 11:19 pm 1 comment

Since squash and apples are in season, I decided to make this simple healthy soup!
The apples and the maple syrup add just a hint of sweetness and lots of depth to the flavors.
Ingredients:
About 1/2 a small Butternut squash cubed
A sliced onion
One small peeled and sliced apple (any kind will do)
2 cloves of garlic- diced
One tablespoon tomato paste
One table spoon chopped cilantro
One tablespoon maple syrup
One teaspoon cumin
One teaspoon chili spice
One tbsp canola oil
Salt & pepper to taste

Step 1
Caramelize onions and apples in canola oil over medium heat until tender.
Step 2
Add garlic and butternut squash and tomato paste and all spices and continue sautéing.
Step 3
Add 2 to 3 cups of water and boil over high heat until squash is done.
Step 4
Pour everything into a mixer and puree.
Step 5
Return the soup back to the stove and add the maple syrup.
I served it with a turkey-leftovers-macaroni-casserole.
Bon appetite.
