Warm, delicious and nutritious!
This recipe was provided by our Pilates Instructor’s Mom, Karen. A Birkner family favorite is now a Kelzer family favorite! Like most squash recipes, it takes a little time to prepare, but it is simple and delicious. This recipe also freezes beautifully so you can make a large batch and have leftovers for a busy day ready in the freezer.
- ½ Apples (Something with a bite, like granny smith, is recommended.)
- ½ Butternut Squash (Roasted or just peeled & cut.)
- Fresh or dried Rosemary (A lot if you have it.)
- Chopped onion (1/4 to 1 whole onion depending on the amount of apples & squash. Can also substitute dried onion.)
- Chicken Broth, enough to cover apples and squash (Use vegetable broth if you prefer a completely vegetarian option.)
- A little low-fat milk
- Cook the squash & apples in broth until soft.
- Add a little low-fat milk to make it creamy.
- Blend it in batches with an immersion blender or normal blender after it cools.
