Fall is in full swing and today’s Butternut Squash Sweet Potato Apple Soup is loaded with the flavors of the season. My Mom sent me this recipe last week and I knew I had to make it as soon as possible.  When I saw that she added apples and sweet potatoes to this recipe I knew this was going to be a winner. Not only are we talking lots of health benefits between the vitamin C, fiber and beta-carotene, we are also talking rich flavors.

Butternut Squash Sweet Potato Apple SoupWhen I made this soup I kept it on the thicker side but if you like your soups thinner add more vegetable or chicken broth as you are cooking to thin it out and puree it in the blender longer to reach the desired consistency you want. I enjoyed this soup with fresh green onions, chopped apples and a sprinkle of cinnamon.  You could also add fresh parsley and a nice spoonful of Greek or plain yogurt. Butternut Squash Sweet Potato Apple Soup

Another reason I kept this soup thick is because I wanted to feed it to my 9 month old Andrew.  I like being able to feed him something so nutritious and flavorful that I make and can control the ingredients.

I wish fall would never end!

Instructions

  1. To prepare butternut squash: put the squash in a microwave safe shallow pan with a small amount of water and cook 3-4 minutes. It should be soft to peel and dice.

Notes

Use more of less broth depending on the consistency you want.[br]If your baby has tried all of the ingredients in this soup and is not allergic to any of them then this would be a great baby food.[br]Other garnish ideas: green onions, parsley and greek or plain yogurt.
