  • 4 pounds butternut squash peeled, diced into 1-inch cubes
  • 4 large sweet-tart apples
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage or 1 teaspoon dry sage
  • 6 cups reduced-sodium vegetable or chicken broth
  • chopped pecans to garnish
  • sliced apples to garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Toss squash and apples in olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. If using dry sage, sprinkle with sage before baking. Spread evenly on a large baking sheet. Roast, stirring once, for 30 minutes. If using fresh sage, toss in sage after 30 minutes. Roast for 15-20 more minutes until the squash and apples are very tender and starting to brown.
  3. In a large stockpot, combine squash and apple mixture with broth. Use an immersion blender to blend soup to desired consistency.* Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, for about 5 minutes.
  4. Garnish each bowl with chopped pecans and sliced apples, if desired.

Recipe Notes

*If you don't have an immersion blender, you can blend the soup in several batches using a regular blender or food processor.
