Butternut Squash and Roasted Red Pepper Soup

 

Ingredients

    • 2 medium red bell peppers, cored, seeded, and halved lengthwise
    • 1 large butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cubed
    • 1 large onions, finely chopped
    • 2 (14 1/2 ounce) cans vegetable broth
    • 2 granny smith apples, cored, peeled, and chopped
    • 1 teaspoon curry powder ( to taste)
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven broiler.
  2. Line a small roasting pan or baking sheet with foil. Place pepper halves in pan, cut side down, and place on oven shelf closest to broiler.
  3. Broil until pepper skins are completely black, about 8 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven, wrap peppers in foil, and allow to stand for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove foil and peel off the blackened skins. Slice peppers into 1/2-inch strips and set aside.
  6. Combine squash, onion, apples and broth in heavy 4-qt saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil.
  7. Partially cover saucepan, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until squash is tender, about 20 minutes.
  8. Add the pepper slices and cook for 5 minutes longer.
  9. Transfer soup to food processor or blender and process until smooth. Return to saucepan, add seasonings and reheat before serving.
