3 large firm apples, cubed
1 medium red onion, chopped
1 T. fresh ginger, minced

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup Directions
Preheat oven to 400°F and line a large baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper or a Silpat® baking mat. Set aside.
Combine butternut squash, apples, red onion, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice, and olive oil in a large bowl. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and toss to combine.
Spread seasoned butternut squash mixture onto prepared baking sheet and spread into a single layer. Place in preheated oven and roast until squash is fork tender, approximately 25-30 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool slightly before transferring one-quarter of the roasted veggie mixture to a high-powered blender. Add one cup of chicken broth to a container and blend until smooth. Add a little more broth, if necessary, to reach desired consistency.
Transfer puree to a large soup pot and repeat process with remaining vegetables and chicken broth. Turn heat to medium and cook, stirring frequently, until soup is heated through, approximately 5-10 minutes.
Remove from heat and adjust seasonings, as desired, before serving. Enjoy!
