admin's picture
Ingredients
  Sweet butter 4 Tablespoon
  Finely chopped onions 2 Cup (32 tbs) (Use Yellow Onions)
  Curry powder 5 Teaspoon
  Butternut squash 2 Medium
  Apples 2 , peeled, cored and chopped
  Chicken stock 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Apple juice 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Salt To Taste
  Freshly ground black pepper To Taste
  Granny smith apple 1 , shredded, unpeeled (For Garnish)
Directions

Melt the butter in a pot.
Add chopped onions and curry powder and cook, covered, over low heat until onions are tender, about 25 minutes.
Meanwhile peel the squash (a regular vegetable peeler works best), scrape out the seeds, and chop the flesh.
When onions are tender, pour in the stock, add squash and apples, and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, until squash and apples are very tender, about 25 minutes.
Pour the soup through a strainer, reserving liquid, and transfer the solids to the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade, or use a food mill fitted with a medium disc.
Add 1 cup of the cooking stock and process until smooth.
Return pureed soup to the pot and add apple juice and additional cooking liquid, about 2 cups, until the soup is of the desired consistency.
Season to taste with salt and pepper, simmer briefly to heat through, and serve immediately, garnished with shredded apple.
