Ingredients
  1. 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  2. 2 1⁄2 cups yellow onion, chopped
  3. 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
  4. 1 cup carrot, chopped
  5. 1 cup celery, chopped
  6. 8 1⁄2 cups (1-inch cubes) butternut squash (about 2 small squash)
  7. 3 cups peeled, cored, and chopped Granny Smith apple (about 3 apples)
  8. 10 sprigs thyme, tied together with string
  9. 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  10. 1⁄4 teaspoon ground cumin
  11. 1⁄4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  12. 8 cups vegetable broth
  13. Garnish: fresh sage
Instructions
  1. In a large Dutch oven, melt butter over medium-high heat. Cook onion and garlic until translucent, approximately 8 minutes. Stir in carrot and celery; cook 5 minutes more. Add squash, apple, thyme, salt, cumin, pepper, and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer until vegetables are tender, approximately 25 minutes. Discard thyme.
  2. Working in batches, transfer vegetables to the container of a blender with a slotted spoon; purée until smooth. Reserve broth. Transfer puréed vegetables to a large saucepan.
  3. Reheat puréed vegetables over medium heat; thin with reserved broth until soup reaches desired consistency. Garnish with sage, if desired.
