Homemade Butternut Squash Soup

It doesn't get more easy and healthy than this homemade squash soup. My Nonna and I whipped up this soup last week and it was a hit. We used minimal, fresh ingredients and the flavours really popped. Its clean healthy eating at its finest :)

1 Butternut Squash
1 Onion diced
2 Apples
1 chicken bouillon cube
3 cups of water (aprox. depending how thick you like it)
Salt and Pepper
Take the outer skin off squash and cut into chunky cubes
Drizzle pot with oil, and add onions. 
Add in the squash. Let this cook until squash is tender.
Cut up apple and add it to the pot. Once apple is in, add water and bouillon cube. Let this cook until everything is tender in the pot.
Using a hand blender, puree the soup until there are no lumps. You are looking for a smooth and somewhat thick consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Voila!! An easy peasy yummy soup! I garnished with some homemade croutons. If you like what you see, give it a try at home. You won't be dissapointed. 

Happy Eating!
