Roasted Apple & Squash Soup

I love everything about Fall, and as much as I love Summer, I do adore the seasons changing.  It's pretty chilly where we are, although it's supposed to warm up again, and so in my opinion? Let the soups begin!  Soups are an excellent way to warm up and easily get your veggies in.  They're really not that complicated at all either, and to top it off they make your house smell amazing!  Oh, and there's usually enough to share with a friend or stock up in the freezer for those lazy and cold winter nights, no one wants to cook!

So today? I roasted up some fall veggies.  This is what I came up with!

1 winter squash {I used buttercup--sweet!}--sliced in half, removed seeds
2 organic sweet potatoes- peeled & quartered
3 organic Gala apples - peeled & cored
2 cloves of garlic (peeled)
2 onions --peeled & cored
Sea salt & Chili powder to taste
1 carton of chicken broth {could use veggie}

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees & roast veggies in evoo for 40 minutes, turning them over at 20 minutes.

I let everything cool {because Brooke woke up!} and then added the broth to a large pot--used an immersion blender and pureed everything.  Brought it to a boil.

Serve warm.

You could add a bit of cilantro and/or greek yogurt to garnish.


Brooke & Joe LOVED it!! Simple yet tasty fall flavor.

**I had some photos, but my computer is acting all crazy again, and I can't seem to upload or add any.  {Check out my Instagram or Facebook pages to see!}  Looks like I know where all my hard earned AdvoCare income will be going!! Sheesh. I am thinking I need to take the plunge into the Mac world....

But I can add some on my phone-
