What’s in this Butternut Squash and Apple Soup?

  • 42 oz of peeled and chopped butternut squash! I buy mine precut to save a lot of time and effort!
  • a variety of vegetables: onions, celery, carrots, garlic, and an apple.
  • best quality vegetable stock
  • fresh herbs – thyme and sage (you could use parsley and/or rosemary instead)
  • plenty of freshly ground black pepper and if you wish some kosher salt

What equipment do I need?

How long will it keep and can I freeze it?

4 days in the fridge will be just fine.

Yes, you can absolutely freeze this soup. It freezes beautifully having no cream or dairy in it.
