Butternut Squash and Envy Apple Soup with Sage

What is UP with this weather? Yesterday it was sunny and, like, 80*. Today it's raining and freaking freezing! Soup weather, for sure!

Remember in January when I went to that Envy Apple Cooking Class at Central Market? This soup was probably my favorite dish of the night. It's creamy, warm, and so savory. Even my butternut squash hating husband gobbled it up.

Recipe Tips:
This soup features Envy Apples specifically but you can definitely use any apple you have. I would use a milder apple- not sweet, not tart. I think this recipe could be elevated with Bone Broth in place of Chicken Broth and don't be shy with that black pepper!

Butternut Squash and Envy Apple Soup with Sage
Adapted from Chowhound
Makes 6-8 servings


4 pounds Butternut Squash (about 2 medium), peeled and cubed
2 Tbs Unsalted Butter (divided)
1 medium Envy Apple (about 8 ounces)
1/2 medium Yellow Onion
8 fresh Sage Leaves
2.5 cups Low Sodium Vegetable/Chicken Broth
2.5 cups Water
1.5 tsp Kosher Salt
1/2 tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1/3 cup Heavy Cream
1/2 cup Toasted Pumpkin Seeds, for garnish

1. Heat oven to 425* with a rack in the middle.
2. Toss butternut squash cubes in 1 tbs melted butter and place them on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Roast until knife-tender, about 20 minutes.
3. Peel, core, and dice apple. Cut onion into a medium dice. Melt remaining 1 tbs of butter in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the apple, onion, and sage, season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally until softened- about 7 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside.
4. Add the squash to the saucepan with the apples and onions.
5. Add the broth, water, and measured salt and pepper, stir to combine and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer (B2B, R2S) stirring occasionally and breaking up any chunks of squash until the flavors meld- about 15 minutes.
6. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the heavy cream.
7. Using an immersion blender (or regular just be careful with the lid and the steam!) puree the soup until smooth.
8. Taste and season with salt/pepper as needed.
9. Garnish with pumpkin seeds and serve!

  1. As a sign of gratitude for how my husband was saved from Lymes, I decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
    My husband suffered from Lymes and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because he was my all and the symptoms were terrible, we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure him. I searched for a cure and I saw testimony of so many people who were cured from Lymes , and so many others with similar body problems, and they left the contact of this doctor who had the herbal cure to Lymes. I never imagined Lymes had a cure not until I contacted him and he assured me my husband will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my husband used it and in one months he was fully okay even up till this moment he is so full of life.Lymes has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com Dr Itua can cure Herpes,Hiv,Cancer,ALS,Copd,HPV,Lupus,MS,Diabetes, and other disease talk to Dr Itua on how to get the medication.
