Butternut Squash and Apple Soup

butternut-apple-curry-soup.jpg

Right from the time Kenya first started solids, two of his favorite foods have always been squash and apples. Steamed, baked, pureed, whatever...he loves them. Now that winter ingredients have returned in abundance at the farmer's markets, I was really excited to try out this soup. You would be shocked at how much kids love soup, especially pureed versions that they can drink from a cup or bowl. It really lets them experience control over their dining experience. Kenya truly slurps this recipe up like it's a smoothie. Even better, my husband who's been trying to "lose a few" ate bowl after bowl in an attempt to eat more vegetables. This is a fantastic recipe because it's super healthy, fast to prepare and cook and so easy to make!

    Ok, I think I must be an idiot. How do you feed soup to your toddler? I guess I've been totally afraid to try it because it seems like something that would get thrown on the floor.

    Help!!! :)

    Hi Catherine,

    I made this soup tonight, opted for the curry, and LOVE it. The worst part was peeling the squash. I know how easy it is to shed squash of its peeling once its roasted in the oven. Do you have any tips for peeling the raw squash?

    Sharlyn

    BTW, I love your tip about cutting the peaches. It works like a charm every time. I've shared it with several friends.

    Just made this soup using oven-roasted Delicata squash, leftover fresh homemade applesauce, chicken stock, and a little parsley in addition to the nutmeg and a pinch of curry. Served with parmesan-thyme scones and a salad - it was SO good!

    Just a tip, I get packages of pre-peeled, cubed butternut squash from Costco--doing it myself is one of those things I just can't seem to master. Does anyone know how many cups of cubed squash would be used in this?

    Also, there seem to be a lot of spam type comments on this post--you may want to go through and edit them?
