Use an immersion blender or regular blender with a vent to blend the soup. Serve with yogurt mixed in and optional red pepper flakes.

Hint: The butternut squash and apples can be roasted in advance. Core the apple and dice into 1 inch cubes for roasting. Wash, peel, remove seeds of the butternut squash and cut into ½ inch cubes for roasting. Thicker sizes will take longer in the oven. Here is a favorite vegetable peeler that I love to use.

Cooking butternut squash

First peel wash and peel butternut squash using a vegetable peeler. Then slice off the ends. Slice in half then scoop out the center seeds with a spoon.

Once the seeds are removed it is easy to slice the squash into ½ inch cubes. Add the butternut squash cubes to a sheet pan to roast. Roast at 400 degrees tossed with olive oil for about 25-30 minutes.


You can use the same recipe below and use another squash such as acorn squash, delicata squash, or pumpkin squash. You can also add these variations to this roasted butternut squash and apple soup recipe.

  • Spicy – add chili pepper flakes while cooking or chili powder to add some heat.
  • Crunchy – add crushed gluten-free croutons or vegetable chips made of beets and root vegetables to garnish the soup. It adds beautiful color and mouthwatering crunch!


Immersion blenders are great to use for pureeing soups. Place the hand blender over the soup and puree it until smooth. I also highly recommend a Vitamix (which is what I use). It has a soup setting and blends this roasted butternut squash apple soup to the perfect texture. It even warms as it blends!


Store leftover soup in the refrigerator in an airtight container and consume within 1 week.
