Apple Cinnamon Butternut Squash Soup

Chopped apple and a hint of cinnamon gives this ultimate comfort food a new twist.

Ingredients

  • 6-8 cups peeled, cubed, and seeded butternut squash (about 2 medium). Pssst…most grocery stores have this all prepped and ready to go in the produce department.
  • 1 large apple, peeled and chopped
  • 1 large onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tbsp packed brown sugar, optional
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ¾ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ pepper
  • 3 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 container (6 oz) Greek Fat Free lemon yogurt or 6 oz Neufchatel/Cream cheese
  • 1 drop doTERRA Marjoram E.O.
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh chives

In Dutch oven, mix squash, apple, onion, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon and pepper. Add broth. Cover; heat to boiling over medium-high heat. Reduce heat; simmer about 20 minutes or until squash is tender.

Using a hand-held blender, blend the mixture until smooth. You can also do this with a food processor by adding ⅓ of mixture to the processor and then slowly adding the mixture to the processor until all soup is smooth.

Return to Dutch oven and stir in milk and yogurt. Heat over low heat, stirring occasionally, just until heated through. Add doTERRA Marjoram E.O. and stir gently. Ladle into bowls and sprinkle with chives. Serve hot. Enjoy!
