  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil or butter
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 6 scallions, white part only, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 large green apple, (Granny Smith, Pippin, etc.) peeled, cored and diced
  • 5 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup apple juice or cider

  1. Heat oil in a large pot. Cook celery and scallions over medium heat, until soft, about 3 minutes. Stir in both gingers, pepper and apple. Cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add stock, apple juice and squash. Bring to a boil over high heat. Partially cover and simmer about 20 minutes or until squash is very tender. Purée in blender or food processor until smooth.
