  • 1 large red apple cubed
  • 1 whole peeled - seeded- and cooked squash
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  1. Recipe for the Health Master or other food cooking blenders.
  2. How to cook the squash:
  3. We have tried just putting the ingredients in the blender, but it doesn't get done enough and the squash is still somewhat raw. This is what we suggest for this recipe that works for us.
  4. Step 1: Wash squash before you cut it. Peel, remove seeds and cube butternut squash. Rinse the squash again. (Please view the video on how to cut squash safely.) Place in large microwave safe bowl and cover. Cook on high for 15 minutes or until soft (mashable).
  5. Step 2: In the meantime, combine the apple, onion, garlic, and thyme with the olive oil in a saucepan cooking for about 3-5 minutes.
  6. Step 3: Add vegetable stock, squash and sauted mixture to the blender. Put on the lid. Turn on speed 8 for 8 minutes if you are using the Health Master Blender. If using another blender, pulse it until the desired texture is achieved, and then re-heat. Spoon into bowls and add apple or other garnish if desired.
