Butternut Squash and Apple Soup
Looking for a new fall soup recipe? Try this Butternut Squash and Apple Soup with turmeric and ginger! It is creamy, rich, and bursting with warm fall flavor. Gently spiced and packed with vegetables, this soup has a perfect balance of sweetness and savoriness. It is healthy, vegetarian- and vegan-friendly, too.
Since I cut the butternut squash by myself, I love to put all those butternut squash seeds to good use by roasting them in the oven. So how to roast butternut squash seeds? It’s easy! Use an ice cream scoop to remove the raw seeds from the butternut squash. Put the seeds into a mesh sieve, wash and remove any pulp left. Dry the seeds well in between a paper towel. Place the seeds on a baking sheet and toss them with olive oil, salt, paprika, and black pepper. Then spread the seeds evenly and roast them for about 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Be sure to toss the seeds every 5 minutes for even browning. Once the seeds are lightly brown, remove them from the oven and let cool. Use the roasted seeds to garnish the soup instead of pepitas or as a crunchy topping for salad.
