Ingredients
 
 

  • 1 tablespoons butter or olive oil
  • 6 cups chopped butternut squash (about 1 medium)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion (about 1 medium, skin discarded)
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 medium apple (chopped)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 quart reduced-sodium vegetable or chicken broth
  • 1 14.5- ounce can white cannellini beans (rinsed and drained)

Instructions
 

  • Warm the butter or olive oil in a medium pot over medium heat.
  • Add the squash, onion, celery, apple, salt, and pepper and stir to combine. Cook for about 10 minutes, or until just starting to soften, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the broth and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 20-25 minutes or until the vegetables are soft.
  • Add the beans and puree until very smooth with either an immersion blender or a regular blender. Season to taste with salt and serve warm.

Notes

  • To store: Let cool completely and store in the fridge for up to 5 days or in a zip top freezer bag, flattened, in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  • Puree the soup with an immersion blender right in the pot, or let cool slightly and puree in a regular blender.
  • To serve soup to a toddler who's not so into it, start with a very small serving and offer bread or crackers for dipping.
  • You can serve this soup in a reusable pouch or give them permission to drink it right out of a little cup or mug.
  • Try using a little of this soup as a sauce for rice, couscous, or pasta.
