Butternut Squash Soup with Sage, Apples & Cream

I love a good soup! And during the holiday season, I especially love making soups that scream fall and winter. And my Creamy Butternut Squash Soup does just that!

I kind of think a lot of people are afraid of butternut squash, but it is such a versatile vegetable and it can be used in a myriad of ways. It has a creamy, velvety texture and it’s nice and earthy.

So I believe that keeping it as simple as possible is best, allowing the squash to really shine through. Simply paired with fresh sage and sweet apples, it’s a match made in Heaven. It’s unbelievably easy, but the flavors are complex.

Also, it’s simple enough for a family dinner, or elegant enough for a Friendsgiving or Christmas!

Ingredients

  • 1 Butternut Squash, whole or cubed
  • 48 oz Swanson Natural Goodness Chicken Broth, low sodium

  • 2 – 2 1/2 tbsp Sugar
  • Himalayan Pink Salt, to taste
  • Fresh Sage, chopped
  • Honeycrisp Apples, chopped into bite size pieces (skin on)

Instructions

  • Cut squash in half, wrap both halves in waxed paper and put face down in the microwave. Cook for 15-20 minutes until fork tender. (For cubed: add to a large bowl with a little water and cover with saran wrap; cook for 10-15 minutes).
