Roasted Butternut Squash, Pumpkin and Apple Soup

I love fall!  It is definitely my favorite season of the year.  There is nothing more comforting than snuggling up with a bowl of soup to get rid of any chill in the air.  My Roasted Butternut Squash, Pumpkin and Apple Soup is my all-time favorite fall soup recipe.  Creamy, luscious and full of seasonal flavors!  A perfect blend.

The flavor of this soup is enhanced by roasting the butternut squash, apples and sweet potatoes. It really adds to the depth of flavor for this soup.  I purchase already peeled and diced butternut squash from the grocery store.

If you can’t find prepped butternut squash, cut a large squash in half.  Drizzle olive oil over the squash.  Season and roast.  This way you won’t have to peel and chop the squash, which is a definite bonus if you have ever tried to peel one.  Once the squash is roasted, you simply need to scoop out the luscious, caramelized butternut squash flesh with a spoon and discard the skin. So Easy!

The pumpkin puree, sweet potato and apple adds some delicious sweet flavors and complexity to this soup.  The spices simply scream fall!

You have two options for pureeing this soup.  The first option is to use an immersion blender.  Remove from the heat.  Let cool for 10 minutes.  Add the heavy whipping cream and blend with the immersion blender until you get a nice puree.  This is my preferred method, but if you prefer something even more smooth, then the second option may be your choice.

The second option is to blend in a traditional blender.  This method typically results in a smoother puree.  However, this method will require blending in batches.  Be careful and make sure the soup has cooled sufficiently before blending.  Blending hot liquid is not recommended.
