savory winter soup

February 1, 2011

savory winter soup
this savory soup was a delicious addition to our dinner last week. you know my mister doesn’t care for soup, but he called this one an exception (yeah!). it’s perfect for those cold blustery days as the cozy flavors of winter warm you up from the inside out.


2 butternut squash – roasted
2 granny smith apples – chopped to 1″ pieces
1 onion – chopped
3 cloves of garlic
2 tbs olive oil
1-1/2 cups apple juice
1 cup coconut milk
3 cups veggie stalk
2 tsp salt
1 tsp minced ginger

now, i would like to say season to taste with the following spices, but if you need a starting point, this is what i recommend. then, adjust as necessary:

1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
1 tsp curry
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1/2 tsp nutmeg


roast the butternut squash (click here for the how-to). meanwhile, heat the olive oil over medium heat in a heavy saucepan. add onions, apples and garlic and saute until onions become translucent (~7 mins). add the roasted butternut squash, ginger, apple juice, coconut milk, veggie stalk and bring to a boil. puree soup (i use this handy gadget or you could transfer the soup to a blender and return it to the pot). season with salt and spices and serve hot. enjoy!
