Soup is good; solar soup is even better. This is a simple recipe adapted for the GSO from one I found on In can easily be personalized with your own choice of spices.

Sun Oven Butternut Squash and Apple Soup


2 tablespoons butter

1 medium onion, chopped

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

4 medium butternut squash, peeled, seeded, cut into cubes; about 4 cups

1 gala apple, peeled, cored, and diced.

3 1/2 cups broth, chicken or vegetable

sour cream

chopped fresh chives


Put Global Sun Oven out to preheat.

Melt butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and nutmeg, saute until onions are soft, about 5 minutes. Add squash, apple, and broth. Cover and place in GSO. Cook until squash and apple are soft, about 45 minutes. Puree soup in batches in a blender or with an immersion blender until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with sour cream and chives.
