butternut squash and apple soup

This is the perfect fall soup – a creamy but healthy Butternut Squash and Apple Soup! Butternut Squash and Apple Soup-2
Another squash recipe?! I know, shocking. I’m becoming a wee bit too predictable.  But really – what is better this time of year than getting cozy with a big bowl of pure comfort in the form of soup that features a seasonal vegetable?  Not much, I say.

Truth be told, I had actually originally planned to re-make my first Butternut Squash and Apple Soup recipe on zee blog that I first posted a billion years ago (okay, two), but ended up freestylin’ a little bit instead.  In the end, I wound up with a slight variation that not only makes the soup wayyyy creamier than my original recipe, but packed with more protein.  The secret: tofu!

Butternut Squash and Apple Soup-3 You see, since I still have a bunch of that Mori-Nu tofu (p.s. $100 and a boat load of tofu still up for grabs in my giveaway!) I decided to add a block of the silken tofu to the soup and blend it all up.  As you can see, it turned out super creamy and as I can attest, it turned out super delicious.

I also jazzed it up a bit and garnished it with some diced apples and pumpkin seeds, for some crunch every few bites.  Of course, some cheese on top is always welcome, too.  Either way – I’m so glad I remade/reinvented this soup…it is delicious and perfect for this time of year!

  1. This is just one of those recipes you want to keep to yourself, that way you can eat it all up by yourself. I love how pretty it is. I’d be slurping it up at rapid speed.

  2. I personally enjoy your “predictability” when it comes to butternut squash. 😉 I think the only thing that would make this recipe better would be some B sprouts…well maybe not, I just really really really wanted to type “B sprouts.” Seriously though, I love this soup! I can’t believe there is tofu in it! Pinning!

  3. This was yummy! I’ve never made spaghetti squash before and I’m not sure if it’s supposed to me soft or not when it’s done. My squash was on the larger side so maybe I should have cooked it longer.
