  • 1 large Butternut Squash peeled and cubed (seeds removed)
  • 2 Carrots peeled and sliced
  • 1 Onion chopped
  • 4 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 Apple cored and cubed
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive oil
  • 3-4 cups Vegetable Broth
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Sage finely chopped
  • 6 Sprigs Fresh Thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon Celery Salt
  • pinch Cinnamon
  • pinch Nutmeg
  • pinch Cayenne Pepper optional

For Garnishing

  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • Fresh Thyme or Sage Leaves
  • Roasted Pepitas
  • Pomegranate Seeds


  • Cube the squash and apple, slice the carrots, chop the onion, mince the garlic, and finely chop the sage.
  • Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and saute for 2 minutes. Add the garlic, and saute another minute.
  • Add the squash, carrots, apple, herbs and spices, and 3 cups of vegetable broth to the pot. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.
  • Remove the pot from the heat, and carefully remove the thyme sprigs.
  • Carefully blend the soup with an immersion blender until smooth.
  • Ladle into bowls, garnish if desired, and serve!


  • If you don't have an immersion blender, you could add batches to a traditional blender.
  • If you prefer a thinner soup, whisk in an additional cup of vegetable broth.
  • Any type of apple will do! I used a McIntosh.
