apple and squash soup-oag

Two fall favourites, apples and squash, team up in this creamy textured but light tasting soup. It’s velvety and comforting, perfect for all. Make it vegetarian with vegetable stock, dairy-free with almond or other types of milk, or make it as is with chicken stock and cream. Enjoy it as an appetizer for your upcoming holiday meal, or add it to your dinner rotation with local apples in abundance.
