Ingredients

1 tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, halved and thinly sliced
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tbsp minced fresh ginger
1 pickled jalapeño pepper, seeded, deveined, and finely chopped (wear gloves when handling; they burn)
1 ½ lbs butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and thinly sliced
2 tsp sugar
1 lb MacIntosh apples, cored, peeled, and thinly sliced
1 lb Granny Smith apples, cored, peeled, and thinly sliced
1 ½ tsp chili powder
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp dried thyme
1 ½ cups chicken or vegetable stock

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, ginger and jalapeño and sauté 5 minutes or until onion is softened. Add squash, sprinkle with sugar, and sauté 5 minutes or until crisp-tender.
  2. Add apples, chili powder, salt and thyme and stir to coat. Add stock and 1 ½ cups water and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, 30 minutes or until squash is tender. Working in batches, transfer to a blender or food processor, cover, and puree until smooth. Return to pan and cook until heated through.
