Ingredients
  1. 1 medium yellow onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  2. 1 celery rib, chopped (about 3/4 cup)
  3. 1 carrot, chopped (about 3/4 cup)
  4. 2 Tbsp butter
  5. 1 butternut squash, peeled and chopped (6 to 8 cups), seeds discarded
  6. 1 tart green apple, peeled, cored, chopped (squash and apple ratio should be 3:1)
  7. 3 cups chicken stock or broth (use vegetable broth if cooking vegetarian)

  9. Pinches of nutmeg, cinnamon, cayenne, salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. Method
  2. 1 Sauté onion, carrot, celery in butter: Heat a large thick-bottomed pot on medium-high heat. Melt the butter in the pot and let it foam up and recede. Add the onion, carrot, and celery and sauté for 5 minutes. Lower the heat if the vegetables begin to brown.
  3. 2 Add squash, apple, broth, water, then simmer: Add the butternut squash, apple, broth and water. Bring to boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes or so, until the squash and carrots have softened.
  4. 3 Purée the soup: Use an immersion blender to purée the soup, or work in batches and purée the soup in a standing blender.
  5. 4 Season with nutmeg, cinnamon, cayenne, salt, pepper: Add pinches of nutmeg, cinnamon, and cayenne. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Notes
  1. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley or chives.
