Apple-Cinnamon Butternut Squash Soup from the Pillsbury site!

Apple-Cinnamon Butternut Squash Soup

You Need:


8
cups cubed seeded peeled butternut squash (2 medium)
1
large apple, peeled, chopped
1
large onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
2
tablespoons packed brown sugar
3/4
teaspoon salt
3/4
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8
teaspoon pepper
3
cups Progresso® chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
3/4
cup milk
1
container (6 oz) Yoplait® Greek Fat Free plain yogurt
2
tablespoons chopped fresh chives

To Make:

  • 1In Dutch oven, mix squash, apple, onion, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon and pepper. Add broth. Cover; heat to boiling over medium-high heat. Reduce heat; simmer about 20 minutes or until squash is tender.
  • 2In blender or food processor, place one-third of mixture. Cover; blend until smooth. Repeat twice to use up remaining soup. Return to Dutch oven, stir in milk and yogurt. Heat over low heat, stirring occasionally, just until heated through. Ladle into bowls; sprinkle with chives.

Tips:

When selecting butternut squash, look for those that have hard, tough rinds and are heavy for their size. Peeling the squash will be easier if you first microwave it on High for 3 minutes.

Purchase already peeled and cut-up squash if available at your grocery store. If you’re cutting it yourself, a good, swivel-headed vegetable peeler is the tool of choice to make quick work of peeling the squash.
