Butternut Squash Apple Soup

Yesterday we enjoyed a day off from work thanks to Veterans Day. I work for the government and Josh works for a bank so we usually get all of the random holidays off. We ran a lot of errands, took our friends’ dog for a run/walk, relaxed, and of course did some cooking! The highlight of the day:)

We made a big batch of butternut squash soup and it is theΒ perfect fall soup!!

You puree it until desired consistency, but we kept it pretty thick. I love the orange color. This soup has few ingredients and is so simple to make. I can’t wait to have some for lunch today!!

  1. I have been wanting to try butternut squash soup and haven’t set on which recipe I am going to use yet. This one looks good. I am sure the apple added some flavor to it. It sure does look wonderful!

  2. Looks beautiful!!!! And the combo with apple sounds really nice. What kind of immersion blender do you have? I am thinking of getting one.

  3. Oh, so beautiful! Any day that produces a soup like this sounds like a good day to me! BTW, I made your tortellini soup last weekend — so fabulous!

  4. Yeah, you can’t go wrong with Elise’s recipes… I love squash soup– perfect for these rainy days I’ve been having here!

  5. That looks super comforting. I did miss quite a few of your recipes over the week, didn’t I? πŸ™
    Have added you to the “to follow” list. Am not gonna miss any more of your amazing goodies.

  6. Butternut squash soup is one of my favs, but the addition of apple just sends it over the top! I’m flagging this recipe for sure!

  7. Veterans Day off? Lucky!

    Haha nice job with the butternut apple soup. It looks delicious and I bet its just as good the second day. Maybe lunch should come earlier πŸ™‚

  8. i wish i had gotten veteran’s day off. oh well–i would’ve been completely useless if i had. looks like you got stuff done–fabulous soup. its consistency looks perfect. πŸ™‚

  9. I just bought a big bag of precut butternut squash at Costco (so excited to find this!)…I’ve never made soup with it, I want to try this! It sounds so good!

  10. Can you use a blender for this soup instead? A friend from church made this for our church supper tonight and it was delicious! She even grew the squash herself in the church garden– an overachiever!
