Squash that Soup!!

A friend of mine from work gave me this great Butternut Squash soup recipe, and I made it!  It tastes like a sweet potato type soup, but best yet, its pretty done healthy, and all the ingredients are very much available at this time of year.
Ingredients: 3 leaks, 1 Butternut squash, 5 Granny apples, 1-2 onions, salt and pepper.  Also some Chicken boulion .. 2 cups worth.

First cut up the squash and peel it and place it in a container that has about 2 cm o' water in it, place it in the oven for an hour at 400 -- when its done, the squash should be soft.

In a separate bowl place: 5 peeled and cut up apples, 3 leaks (ONLY the white parts) cut up, and the cut up onion together.

In a pot, place 2 tbsp. o' oil, and when its hot, pour in the onion, apples, and leaks.   Put it on med, until its all soft.

When that's done, pour in the boulion and stir.

Drain the Squash, and then put that into the pot with the rest of the stuff.    Let this simmer for 10 min.  Add salt and pepper.

Then put everything in a blender/food processor until it's smooth/puraid and then place in bowls, or like I did put it all in a crock pot to let all the flavours come together.

The best part about this recipe is that its all natural, no additives, and its got a nice natural sweetness.   Should be tasty with some sandwiches.

For fun, you can try adding some parmesian cheese, or some sourcream.
