Butternut Squash Maple Apple Soup from Barrie Hill Farms

Roasting the squash with a drizzle of maple syrup will result in a soup that will have the kids rubbing their tummies.

This would be the perfect appetizer for Thanksgiving dinner and can easily be made the day before. I loved the creaminess of this soup and found myself dipping apples and sourdough bread to get every drop!

Tips for Preparing Your Butternut Squash Maple Apple Soup

  • You can add a little or a lot of maple syrup depending on your desire for sweetness. This soup is great with no maple syrup as well. Keep an eye on it as it’s roasting. It can burn easily.
  • The toppings always make the soup! Apple slices, croutons, smoked pepitas (pumpkin seeds), sunflower seeds and thyme are perfect with these flavors.
  • You can puree the soup in the pot with a hand blender but for super creaminess, I recommend a high speed blender like a Vitamix.
  • You can use butter or olive oil to saute your veggies. I used butter in this recipe because sometimes you just have to embrace a little decadence!
