Baby, it’s cold outside! Since this is the first week in the Bay Area that it has been super chilly in the morning and evening, I was inspired to make a warm and cozy soup.
I ordered butternut squash, apples, garlic, and sage from Good Eggs last week. At first, I thought I would make the Butternut Squash Gnocchi recipe that I saw on Bon Appetit, but then I realized I simply did not have enough time to conquer that recipe this week with work, a trip to LA and such.
Wednesday, I pulled out my Vitamix cookbook to see if there was a recipe for butternut squash soup. Their recipe called for steaming the squash and apple plus sautéing the onion. Since I was trying to make things easy, I opted to throw everything on a pan and roast it for 30 min (apples) to 1 hr (butternut squash, garlic, and onion). I decided to handle this on Wednesday as I was already using the oven for dinner and then it would make throwing the soup together last night that much easier.
