Step 1

Melt butter and olive oil in a dutch oven or large saucepan set over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until softened, stirring often, about 5 minutes.

Add in the chopped carrots and butternut squash, and cook for an additional 5 minutes, stirring often. Add in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds, stirring constantly.

Add in the chopped apple, vegetable stock, and apple cider. Bring mixture to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to simmer. Cook, covered, until the vegetables are fork-tender, about 30 minutes.

Purée using an immersion blender, or in batches using a blender or food processor. Stir in the cinnamon, nutmeg, and maple syrup. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
