The first thing you should know is that I am very creative but not a cook. If it is healthy and can be made using short cuts... I'm all about it. 

So I want to share this soup recipe because it is quick, easy and delicious.

I found this package of frozen organic butternut squash at Costco. I've bought it before and it's delicious. I believe it's only in the stores in the fall because I haven't seen it at any other time. It's great as a steamed side dish too!
Inside this large bag are 5 steam-able bags... for this recipe I used 4 of them.

I began by dicing an onion and frying it in a stock pot with about 2 tsp. of olive oil until glassy. 

I added 2 quarts of low sodium chicken broth and 4 steam-able packages of butternut squash. I diced up one large Honey crisp apple and added it to the soup. 

I simmered the soup for about 20 minutes then used a hand blender (affiliate link) to puree the squash and apple right in the pot.

I added 1/2 a cup of unsweetened almond milk then seasoned with 1 tsp of nutmeg, salt, and pepper to taste.

Optional: I added 2 tsp. of Stevia to sweeten my soup naturally but you can leave this out or sweeten with a sweetener of your choice.
