What's for Lunch Wednesday - Winter Soup

With two sick kids at home over the past two weeks, we have been eating a lot of soup. It is healthy, simple to make, and easy on queasy tummies. We just got this recipe from Living Without magazine and we love it.

1 butternut squash, peeled and chopped or shredded

2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and chopped or shredded

3 carrots, peeled and chopped or shredded

1/4 cup finely chopped sweet onion

4 cups water or stock

1-2 tablespoons fresh ginger, grated

1/4 teaspoon ground mace

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons maple syrup

3 tablespoons coconut milk

1 cup milk of choice

2 tablespoons lemon juice

pumpkin seeds, sour cream (optional garnishes)

Combine vegetables and apples in a large stockpot. Add water or stock and let mixture boil for about 15 minutes or until tender. Stir in spices, maple syrup, coconut milk and milk of choice. Carefully transfer hot soup in batches to a food processor and puree until smooth or puree with a hand-held blender. Serve hot.
