  • prep time: 20 min
  • total time: 45 min
  • serves: 8 people

Sautéed golden squash, sweet apple and onion simmer in chicken broth before being pureed to make a smooth and luscious soup that's loaded with incredible flavor. Using an immersion blender makes pureeing this soup easy.  The prepared soup freezes and reheats beautifully, so you can even make it ahead and reheat just before serving, saving you time.  See Recipe Tips to learn how.
