Butternut Squash and Apple Soup

Ingredients

  • 1 medium to large butternut, simply cut in half, seeds left in
  • 2 large onions, cut in half lengthwise, skins removed and left intact
  • 2 large apples chopped
  • 1 whole head of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 5–7 cups good vegetable stock (depending on the size of the butternut, for a larger butternut, use more stock)
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • dash of cayenne
  • 2 tablespoons Sunwarrior Nutritional Yeast
  • 2 teaspoons Sunwarrior Sea Salt (or to taste)
  • 1/3 cup Sunwarrior Coconut Milk Powder
  • 1 cup water
  • few grinds of black pepper

Instructions

Preheat oven to 325° F. Wrap the head of garlic in aluminum foil. Assemble butternut, onions, apples, and the foil covered garlic on the baking sheet. Brush the Butternut, apples, and the onions with the olive oil. Roast at 325° for about 2 hours or until everything is soft and lightly browned. In the meantime, about 20 minutes before the vegetables are finished, simmer the vegetable stock, water, and coconut powder with the seasonings and spices above over lowest heat.

Once vegetables are fully roasted, remove tray from oven, easily scoop out the butternut seeds, (set aside for toasting if desired). Scoop roasted butternut squash out of its shell with a spoon, roughly chop the roasted onions and cut the top quarter off the roasted garlic and squeeze out all the roasted cloves. Add all the vegetables to the simmering and seasoned vegetable stock. Once heated through, puree completely with an immersion blender (or run batches through your regular blender).
