Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Soup

Well friends, I am on modified bed rest. I am suppose to lay as much as I can or if I am up and playing with the boys, I also have to sit and relax. With that being said cooking is minimal. :( I think that is the hardest part for me. I enjoy cooking and baking so much this will be a huge challenge. 

I love fall!!! I love butternut squash!!! I just got a great big box of butternut squash/spaghetti squash from our CSA. I knew that this soup was something that I had to make and had to make quickly!!!! I love this soup and it is so easy and is very easy to do with just a few standing moments!!! :) 

I did use cream cheese in this soup but if you are doing dairy-free it would taste great with coconut milk or even almond milk. 
The Ingredients:
2 Butternut Squash
2 Sweet Potatoes
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup onion, chopped
1 block of cream cheese (if you are dairy-free add coconut milk)
1 - 2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp red mild curry paste (in a jar)
1 apple, chopped into tiny pieces

The Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut butternut squash in half and take out the seeds. Add 1 tsp of Olive Oil to each butternut squash. Add just a tiny sprinkle of sea salt. Put Butternut Squash in the oven for 10 - 15 minutes and then take out and flip to cut side down and cook for another 20 minutes or until the butternut squash peel is brown and soft. Take out and let cool.

In a pot add 1 TBSP Olive Oil (or Coconut Oil) and melt and add onions until they are just about clear. Once the squash is cooled scoop out the butternut squash and add to the onion. Add one block of cream cheese. Melt the cream cheese. Add chicken broth.

In the microwave cook the sweet potatoes. I have a button for potatoes! I am not sure how long they cooked! Don't forget to poke the sweet potatoes. Let cool and skin! Add apple pieces to microwave and cook for 30 seconds. Apples will soften and let cool.

Add the sweet potatoes to a mixer. I used my VitaMix. Pour butternut squash mixture over top and mix smooth! Pour back into soup pot and add cinnamon and red curry (in a jar). Mix well. Add apples and mix in!

Heat back up and serve!!!
