Oh no! Squash...but wait...is it?

Prep
Cook
Serves 8people
Ingredients
1
butternut squash
2
tbsp olive oil
2
small medium onions, or 2 t onion flakes
4
cups broth, chicken or vegetable
2
small apples, peeled and cubed
1 1/2
salt
1/4
tsp black pepper
1/4
tsp nutmeg
1/4
tsp cloves
1/4
tsp coriander
1/4
tsp cinnamon
Directions
1.
Use at least a 5 quart crockpot for this soup.
2.
Cut the squash in half long ways. This is terribly hard to do. If you microwave the entire
3.
squash for 2 to 5 minutes on high, the skin will soften, but you will still need to use a
4.
pretty powerful knife. If you can find already peeled and cubed butternut squash use that.
5.
I couldn't believe how difficult it was for me to cut the squash. My knife got stuck.
6.
Scoop out the seeds and stringy pulp. Brush olive oil on the inside of the squash and roast
7.
it in the oven at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until you can peel the skin away
8.
from the flesh.
9.
Plug in your crockpot and turn to high. Add the broth, and the onion and apple. Stir in the
10.
spices. Cover to let heat.
11.
When the squash has finished roasting, add it to the pot. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8
12.
hours, or on high for about 4.
13.
Blend in small batches with a stand blender, or carefully blend with an immersible wand.
14.
The Verdict.
15.
This is a comfort soup. I like to curl up with a mug and watch TV. My mom, grandma,
16.
and I all like squash soup, but we're the only ones who do in the family. This is what I'm
17.
going to have for lunch this week.
