Recipe: Roasted Apple and Winter Squash Soup

This delicious and perfect for the season recipe comes from


3 pounds winter squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1-inch pieces

2 medium sweet-tart apples, peeled, cored, and cut into 1-inch pieces

1 medium yellow onion, peeled and quartered

2 large cloves garlic, peeled

1/4 cup olive oil

2 teaspoons Kosher salt

1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary

1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves

1/2 teaspoon ground allspice

4 cups unsalted vegetable broth


Preheat oven to 400°F. In a large bowl, combine the squash, apples, onion, garlic, olive oil, salt, rosemary, thyme, and allspice. Spread the vegetables/fruit on two parchment-lined baking sheets. Roast, turning once, until tender, about 40 minutes.

Puree the roasted vegetables/fruit with the vegetable broth. If using an immersion blender, this may be done in a large pot. If using a food processor, this may be done in batches, transferring the puree to a large pot as you go along.Place the pot over medium heat and simmer until warmed through. If a thinner consistency is desired, add water or more broth. Taste and adjust seasonings.
