I love soup, but out of all my gluten free soup recipes this has to be my new fave! In an attempt to eat healthier I have been purchasing produce that I have either never purchased before or seldom do. I purchased a butternut squash and decided to make this gluten free butternut squash apple soup. The traditional butternut squash recipes just did not appeal to me. I decided to add a bit of apple to sweeten it. Below you will find my butternut squash and apple soup recipe. It is low in sodium. And don’t forget to check out the link below to all of our gluten free soup recipes!
A flavorful, low-fat, low-sodium, dairy-free, gluten-free butternut apple soup.
- 1-1/2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 large whole clove garlic, minced (about 1 teaspoon)
- 3/4 cup coarsely chopped onion (about 1 small onion)
- 1 large stalk coarsely chopped celery
- 1/2 cup coarsely chopped carrots (about 1 medium carrot)
- 1 medium butternut squash (about 3.5 lbs.), peeled, seeded and cubed (about 3/4")
- 1/2 large apple, cubed (about 3/4")
- 1/3 teaspoon ground thyme
- 1/3 teaspoon rosemary
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 4 cups low-sodium gluten-free chicken broth (HerbOx, Better Than Bouillon)
- Sour cream or Greek yogurt and additional nutmeg for garnishing (or non-dairy alternative)
- Fine sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
- Gluten free breadsticks (Schar's brand) (optional)
- Heat oil in a large pot.
- Add onion, carrots, celery and garlic to the pan and stir; sauté for about 4 minutes.
- Add thyme, rosemary and nutmeg; and stir. Cook for 1 more minute.
- Add squash and apples; and stir.
- Add chicken broth; and bring to a boil. (Add more chicken broth, if necessary, so that the chicken broth meets the top of the squash and apple cubes.)
- Lower temperature to medium; and allow to simmer for about 35 minutes.
- Puree in a food processor or blender in batches until smooth; salt and pepper to taste. (Allow it to cool some if you are using a blender to puree it, or the pressure from the heat will blow off the lid during blending.
- Reheat in a sauce pan, if necessary. Garnish with a dab of sour cream or Greek yogurt and then sprinkle with a couple of dashes of nutmeg, or with gluten free breadsticks if desired. Schars makes good ones. Serve warm or cold.
