ridiculously easy butternut squash soup.

as the subject says, this is pretty much the easiest recipe ever, and it is so good, seriously.

-one butternut squash.
-two apples (i used gala; golden delicious would probably work well, too; red delicious or granny smith wouldn't be too great).
-vegetable broth.
-white wine.
-cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg.

chop up the squash and apples into small-ish cubes, put them in ziplock bags and microwave for about 5-10 minutes.
dump them in a blender with enough vegetable broth to get the texture you want (i didn't use much; i like my soups thick), as much white wine as you see fit (4oz should do, any more might be too strong), and generous amounts of the spices.

that's it; the hardest part is cutting the squash (peeling it is a bit of a bitch!).

enjoy. :)
