Butternut Squash And Sweet Potato Soup

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
2 onions, chopped
1 large apple, peeled and diced
2 whole peeled butternut squash, steamed until tender
3 peeled sweet potatoes, steamed until tender
12 cups chicken stock, or more to taste
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

In a large flameproof casserole, melt the butter and cook the onions for 10 minutes or until soft but not brown. Add the apple and cook 2 minutes. Add the squash and sweet potatoes.

Gradually stir in the chicken stock with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and let the soup simmer gently for 20 minutes. Puree the soup in a blender or food processor, return to the pan, taste for seasoning, and add more stock or water if you want to thin. Serve at once.

Serves 8.
