INGREDIENTS

  • 2 packages (24 oz.) cooked chicken-apple sausage, cut into 1/2-inch pieces, then halved
  • 4 cups cubed peeled butternut squash (1 small or medium squash)
  • 3 medium carrots, chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • ½ medium onion, chopped
  • 2 ½ cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • ½ cup fresh sage or parsley leaves

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
  2. Toss diced squash and carrots with olive oil and place on a baking sheet. Bake until tender, or about 30 minutes.
  3. While the squash is cooling, heat coconut oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned – about 4 minutes. Remove from pan.
  4. Place squash, carrots, celery, onion, sage, chicken broth, 2 ½ cups water and pinch of salt to the pot. Cover and bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low and continue simmering until the vegetables are tender, about 15 more minutes.
  5. Puree the soup in a blender in batches, then return to the pot and add the sausage. Top with sage, salt and pepper, and enjoy!
