Instructions:

Step # 1: Heat the oven to 425°F, then line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place the squash pieces cut-side up on the baking sheet. Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter and brush it over the tops and insides of the squash halves (alternatively, you can rub it on evenly with your fingers). Season generously with salt and pepper. Roast until knife tender, about 50 minutes to 1 hour.

Step # 2: In a large saucepan, melt the butter over a medium heat and sautè the apple and onion for 4-5 minutes, being careful not to brown the butter. Add the sage, then scoop the squash flesh into the saucepan, discarding the skins.

Step # 3: Add the chicken stock and water, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally and breaking up any large pieces of squash, until the flavors meld together, about 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the cream and cashew butter. Puree the soup in batches until smooth, and adjust seasoning if necessary. Serve.

Dr Jockers Comments:

Nutrient rich soups and stews are a wonderful addition to a healthy diet.  Butternut squash is tasty and rich in beta carotene (vitamin A) and when combined with grass-fed butter or ghee it synergizes the benefits of the carotenoids due the good fats and retinol that is in the butter.  It is always a good idea to add grass-fed butter or ghee to squash, pumpkin, sweet potato or carrot dishes if possible to enhance the nutrient synergy.

This recipe tastes amazing but it has some starchy carbs.  This is good as a carb meal on a cyclic ketogenic approach that I recommend because it is so rich in good fats and anti-oxidants.  Enjoy!
