I used a spice mixture of rosemary, thyme, cinnamon and nutmeg which gives it that warm, cozy sense and makes your house smell amazing while it cooks.

Ingredients

  • 1 large butternut squash peeled and cubed (about 10 cups)
  • 1 medium fennel bulb chopped
  • 2 medium red apples chopped
  • 1 small white onion chopped
  • 4 - 5 garlic cloves halved
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme or 1 tablespoon fresh, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • Generous pinch of salt & pepper
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • Water or plant milk as needed

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Place the squash, fennel, apples, onion and garlic on a baking sheet and set aside.
  2. Whisk together the oil and spices, and pour over the veggies. Stir around to coat, then roast them in the oven for 30 - 40 minutes. Turn the veggies over halfway through so they don't burn.
  3. When the veggies are done roasting, place them in a stock pot, add your broth and bring everything to a boil. Turn down to low and let simmer for about 10 - 15 minutes, or until all the ingredients are tender.
  4. Blend the soup in a blender or with an immersion blender (in the pot) until you have a creamy, smooth texture. Add water or milk as needed to thin it out and depending on the texture you like. Serve warm with a drizzle of olive oil, some cracked pepper and a sprig of rosemary.
