Step 2: Add in the broth, and cover. Let it simmer for 30 minutes until the butternut squash and apples are soft.

Step 3: Once cooked, puree everything with an immersion blender. Alternately, transfer mixture to a blender and blend until smooth. (You may need to do it in two batches so the blender isn’t overflowing.)

Helpful tips for making this soup perfectly

  • Meal prep ahead of time and pre-cut and slice the butternut squash, apples, and onion.
  • Use an immersion blender to puree the ingredients. If you don’t have an immersion blender, let the soup ingredients cool for 10 minutes, then transfer to a high powered blender. Blend for 1 minute until it’s fully smooth.
  • If you prefer chunkier soup, omit blending completely. 
  • This recipe works well with chicken broth and regular heavy cream if you prefer or only have dairy or animal-based products on hand.
  • This soup keeps up to 1 week. Reheat in a pot on the stovetop or microwave safe glass bowl.
