2smallred apples(we recommend Gala or Fuji, and don't recommend baking apples like Granny Smith, Honey Crisp, or Red Delicious)
2.5-3cupsWhole30 compatible chicken or vegetable broth
¼tspground turmeric,optional, for color
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 400°F (~204°C). Meanwhile, peel and dice the butternut squash and apples. Slice the onion.
Toss the squash, apples, and onion with the olive oil and season lightly with salt and pepper. Transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet. Roast the vegetables for 25-30 minutes, stopping once halfway through cooking to turn the pieces over.
Once the vegetables are done roasting, carefully transfer the mixture to your Zip Top large dish. Add the turmeric, if using. Pour in 2.5 cups of the chicken or vegetable broth. Use an immersion blender to blend the mixture until smooth and creamy, adding a bit more liquid to thin it out, if needed.
Season to taste with salt and pepper. The amount used will vary based on the saltiness of the broth used and personal tastes.
To store for later, allow the soup to cool, then close the seal and store in the refrigerator for 3-4 days, per USDA.
