Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil, for cooking the vegetables
  • 1 cup chopped onion, for the vegetable mixture
  • 1/3 cup baby carrots, sliced
  • 1/3 cup chopped celery
  • 2 cups butternut squash, peeled and diced
  • 2 1/2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth or stock
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro, for the soup (optional)
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil, for the onions and apple curry
  • 1 Golden Delicious apple, diced
  • 1/2 cup diced onion, for cooking with the apple
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 4 Tablespoons plain low-fat yogurt (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro, for the garnish (optional)

Preparation

  1. Heat the oil for cooking the vegetables in a large pot over medium heat. Add half the onions, the carrots, and celery; cook until vegetables are tender, about 7 minutes.
  2. Add the squash; cook 4 minutes. Add the broth and half the cilantro; bring to a boil; reduce heat. Cover; simmer until vegetables are tender, about 10 to 12 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  4. Add remaining onions and cook until golden, about 3 minutes.
  5. Add the diced apple; cook 2 minutes. Add the curry powder; cook and stir 30 seconds.
  6. Remove from heat and set the skillet aside.
  7. Blend the vegetable mixture with an immersion blender, or in a food processor or blender until fairly smooth.
  8. In the large pot, stir the curry-apple mixture from the skillet into the soup.
  9. Heat over low heat until heated through.
  10. Garnish the soup with yogurt and remaining cilantro.
