Weight Watchers Zero Points per 1/2 cup serving
4 cups vegetable broth
12 oz butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1- to 1 1/2-inch cubes

In a large stock pot, combine broth, squash, onion and apple; cover pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Uncover pot and reduce heat to low; gently simmer until squash is very tender, about 10 minutes.
Puree soup in pot using an immersion blender (or puree in a regular blender in batches, careful not to splatter hot liquid). Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg; serve. Yields about 1/2 cup per serving.
