Yield: 7, 1-cup servings

Ingredients

The combination of butternut squash, apples and thyme is delicious, but to give it a different twist, add 2 tsp. grated ginger along with the shallots and add 1 tsp. curry powder instead of the thyme.

  • 2 containers (20 oz. each) fresh butternut squash chunks, or 3lbs peeled butternut squash cut into chunks
  • 2.5 Tbsp. canola oil, divided
  • ¾ tsp. kosher salt, divided
  • ½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 1 cup sliced shallots or chopped onion
  • 1 large Macintosh apple, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 4 cups reduced-sodium fat-free chicken broth
  • ½ tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 cup 2 % milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with nonstick foil or line with regular foil, then coat with nonstick spray.

  2. Place squash on prepared baking sheet; drizzle with 1 ½ Tbsp. of the oil and sprinkle with ½ tsp. of the salt and ¼ tsp. of the pepper; toss to coat.

  3. Roast 30 minutes. Remove from oven and toss. Return to oven and roast until squash is tender, about 15 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in a large, preferably nonstick, saucepan. Add shallots and cook 5 minutes or until tender. Add apple and cook 3 minutes until light golden.

  5. Stir in chicken broth and thyme and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes until apple is tender.

  6. Add roasted squash to saucepan and blend until smooth using a hand-held immersion blender or let cool slightly then, in batches, lift out solids with a slotted spoon into a blender and blend until smooth, adding some broth if needed to make the mixture blend more easily. Return pureed soup to saucepan.

  7. Stir in milk and heat through.
