Ingredients Spotlight:

  • Butternut Squash & Potatoes: These root vegetables provide a creamy base and a rich, velvety texture.
  • Apples: Choose between Honeycrisp, Fuji, or Gala to steer the soup’s sweetness level and texture.
  • Aromatic Blend: Combined with chopped onion, vegetable broth, and a hint of pumpkin pie spice, this soup is a symphony of flavors.

Ingredients:  With a choice of using Honeycrisp - Gala or Fuji

  • 1 butternut squash, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 3 to 4 potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1 large apple, peeled and chopped. Choose between the sweet-tart balance of a Honeycrisp, the pure sweetness of a Fuji, or the mild sweetness of a Gala to adjust the flavor profile to your liking.
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon butter or coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • A pinch of salt and pepper, to taste
  • Toasted pumpkin seeds & plain yogurt or sour cream, to top


1.   Combine the butternut squash, potatoes, onion, vegetable broth, and your choice of apple (Honeycrisp for a sweet-tart balance, Fuji for a sweeter touch, or Gala for a mild sweetness) in a crockpot. Cover and cook on LOW for 5 to 6 hours, or on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours.

2.   Stir in the pumpkin pie spice, butter (or coconut oil), salt, and pepper towards the end of the cooking time. Let the mixture sit for 5 to 10 minutes to allow the flavors to blend together thoroughly.

3.   Serve hot, garnished with toasted pumpkin seeds and a dollop of plain yogurt or sour cream on top for an added creamy texture and tangy flavor contrast.

Apple Variety Deep-Dive:

  • Honeycrisp: For those who seek a balance of sweet and tart, the Honeycrisp offers a juicy crunch that brightens the soup.
  • Fuji: If sweetness is your preference, the Fuji's high sugar content and juicy bite make it the ideal candidate.
  • Gala: For a subtle sweetness that complements rather than competes, the Gala is your go-to apple, with its hints of vanilla and tender texture.
