Ingredients

  • 2 butternut squash, halved lengthwise, seeds removed (about 3 1/2 lb. total)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 large onion, chopped (about 1 3/4 cups)
  • 2 Granny Smith apples
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 6 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 375ºF; line a large baking sheet with foil. Place squash cut sides up on sheet, sprinkle with salt and pepper and cover with foil. Roast until soft, about 1 hour 15 minutes. Cool slightly, then scoop out flesh with a large spoon. Discard skins.
  2. 2. In a large pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, sprinkle with salt and cook, stirring, until soft, about 8 minutes. Do not allow onions to brown. Peel, core and roughly chop apples. When onion is soft, add garlic and chopped apples to pot and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes. Add pumpkin pie spice; stir for 1 minute. Stir in squash and broth; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer until apples are completely soft, 25 minutes.
  3. 3. Working in batches, puree soup in a blender until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Return soup to pot and place over low heat to keep warm.
  4. 4. Divide soup among 8 bowls, drop a dollop of sour cream in the middle of each and serve immediately.
