Apple-Butternut Squash Soup


1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 small onion, thinly sliced
2 pounds butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 carrot, chopped
3 cups lower-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup unsweetened apple cider
Pinches of nutmeg, cinnamon, cayenne, salt and pepper





Heat oil in a large heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and carrot, and cook until softened and lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add squash, cover, and cook 10 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Add broth and simmer until softened, 15 to 20 minutes.


Using a slotted spoon, transfer solid ingredients to a blender and apple cider and purée until smooth. Add 1 1/3 cups of the cooking liquid and purée until smooth. Stir back into the pan and add salt and spices to taste, and garnish with chives or parsley.. Serve hot.
Makes 6 (1 1/2-cups) servings.
