This year my family celebrated Christmas in Santa Fe with my parents, and we enjoyed this soup as our first course.

Butternut Squash Soup

  • 4 cups organic chicken broth
  • 1 butternut squash, cubed and peel removed
  • 2 apples, sliced
  • 3 stalks celery, cut into pieces
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  1. In a large saucepan, combine the chicken broth, butternut squash, apples, celery, onion, garlic, spices and olive oil.
  2. Simmer on low heat covered for 1 hour.
  3. Gradually spoon or pour contents of the saucepan into a large blender like a Vitamix, and place the lid securely on top.
  4. Place a towel over the lid of the blender to avoid injury and a mess.
  5. Blend on high until the soup is pureed.
  6. Serve hot.
