Roasted New York Apple and Squash Soup


Roasted apples provide the sweetness to this delicious winter soup.


  • 2 Empire apples cored and quartered
  • 1 large winter Squash (2 ½ pounds) cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 2 medium onions, peeled and quartered
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoon(s) extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and Dinosaur Cajun Rub to taste
  • 4-5 cups vegetable broth


  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. In large roasting pan, toss squash, onions, garlic and apples with the oil to coat. Season well with salt and Cajun rub. Roast, stirring every 10 minutes until vegetables are fork tender and lightly browned, about 30 minutes.
  3. Put half the vegetables with 2 cups stock in a food processor and puree to smooth. Take the other half and combine with 2 more cups of broth. Return puree mixture to the pot. If the soup is too thick, add more broth.
  4. Serve with a dollop of Pesto on top.
