World's Easiest Butternut-Apple Soup
  • One quart-sized carton of vegetable stock
  • One package of pre-chopped butternut squash (if it's over 30 ounces, use only about 3/4 of it)
  • One yellow onion, cut into big chunks
  • Half an apple (any variety), cut into big chunks
  • Salt, pepper, ground nutmeg
In a soup pot, combine the stock, squash, onion, and apple. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes or until everything is soft and tender. Pour it into a blender (do it in batches if it won't all fit) and puree. (Be careful with blending the hot soup -- don't put the lid on the blender or it will explode due to escaping steam; just cover the top with a dish towel to prevent splatters.) Return to pot and add salt, pepper, and nutmeg to taste.
