  • 4 heaping cups coarsely diced kuri squash seeds and skin removed (buy a 2 -3 pound kuri squash)
  • 1 quart vegetable stock
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 sweet apple, cored and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • – Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1-2 teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper


Place the squash in a soup pot with the stock and a dash of salt and bring to a boil on medium high heat. Simmer, covered, until tender, about 15 minutes.

Drain the squash, reserving all the stock.

Using the same pot, over high heat add 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Add onion and saute until it begins to brown, about 10-15 minutes.

Add the apple, cinnamon, cayenne, and a dash of salt and saute until the apples are soft and lightly browned, about 5-8 minutes.

In batches, if necessary, combine the squash, onion, apple, and stock in a blender. Puree until smooth, adding the remaining tablespoon of olive oil as it blends. Add a little extra stock or water if the soup is too thick.

Taste and season with salt. Serve hot with a few grinds of black pepper.
