Apple Butternut Squash Soup

I am really digging my Health Master Elite! Tonight I tried out one of the recipes from the book that came with it, and added a few of my own ingredients. It turned out delicious!!! Even the kids were  asking for seconds! Along with the soup I served bib lettuce leaves with cherry tomatoes. We just sprinkled a little lime juice on top then wrapped them up like little rolls and dipped into our soup! 



Like I mentioned, I made this with my Health Master.
It can be made in any kind of blender that has the same "cooking" options, like a Vitamix. If you don't have anything like that you can cook it on the stovetop.

You need:

-One butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cooked
-1 Red Delicious apple cored and chopped
-1 clove of garlic, peeled and chopped
-1 small onion, peeled and chopped
-1 sprig of thyme, stem removed
-1 tbsp coconut oil
-1 tbsp cinnamon
-2 cups of low sodium vegetable broth 
-sea salt and pepper to taste
-lime wedges
-1 tbsp coconut sugar (optional)

-Sauté onion, garlic, Apple and thyme in coconut oil for about three minutes.
-Add all ingredients except salt and pepper and coconut sugar to blender. If you are using a Health Master/vitamix, turn speed up to 8 (medium high) and blend for 8 minutes. 
-Add coconut sugar and blend for about 10 seconds.
-Plur into bowl amd squeeze with lime juice. Add salt and pepper if desired. Serve and enjoy!


*STOVETOP: after sautéing ingredients, add the rest of the ingredients minus the coconut sugar. Simmer for about 10-15 minutes then add the coconut sugar at the very end. Stir in and remove from the stove. Blend until desired consistency is reached.
