Sweet Potato, Squash, & Apple Soup

I found this delicious, simple soup in How it All Vegan. I've made this twice in one week. You MUST try it. The sandwich next to the soup is my latest obsession. Hummus and avocado sandwich. Oh. My. Goodness. I love them. I've been eating them daily. Matt loves it when I breathe garlic hummus breath on him. He says he can smell it from every pore in my being.'s not gonna stop me. Yum yum. I digress. Here is the recipe:

Sweet Potato, Squash, & Apple Soup
1 medium onion
1 T olive oil
2 cups veggie stock
2 cups butternut squash, peeled and diced
2 cups sweet potatoes or yams, peeled and diced
2-3 medium apples, cored and diced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)

In a large soup pot, saute the onions in oil on medium high heat until translucent. Add the stock, squash, potatoes, apples, and salt, pepper, nutmeg, and cayenne and bring it to a boil. Turn down the heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Take 2 ladles' worth of veggies and 1 ladle of stock and blend in the blender or food processor until smooth. Return to soup pot and stir together before serving. Makes 4-6 servings.

This soup makes great leftovers too...all the goodness soaks together.
