Prep: 10 Mins. |
Cook: 15 Mins.
1 tablespoon light olive oil
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 (2.5 lb.) winter squash (butternut, kabocha, pumpkin, etc.), peeled, seeds removed, and chopped

1 pear, peeled, cored, and chopped
2-1/4 cups vegetable broth

Heat olive oil in a heavy-bottom medium saucepan to medium-high heat. Add, onion, and saute until translucent. Add squash, apple, pear, broth, and lemon juice. Add the cinnamon, nutmeg, and sea salt and ground pepper, to taste. Bring to boil; reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 10 – 15 minutes, until squash is tender. Puree in a blender, food processor, or with an immersion stick blender. Taste for seasonings, adding more, if needed (as different squash have varying levels of sweetness). Serve with your favorite buttery crackers. – Enjoy!
