    1. Roast the Squash and Apples:
      • Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F). Place chopped butternut squash, apples, onion, and garlic on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Toss to coat evenly. Roast in the oven for about 30-40 minutes or until the vegetables are tender and slightly caramelized.
    2. Blend the Soup:
      • Transfer the roasted vegetables to a large pot. Add the vegetable or chicken broth. Use an immersion blender to blend the mixture until smooth. Alternatively, blend the soup in batches in a regular blender, then return it to the pot.
    3. Add Coconut Milk:
      • Stir in the coconut milk and cook the soup over medium heat for another 5-10 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper.
    4. Prepare Bacon Bites:
      • While the soup is simmering, cook the bacon until crispy. Drain on paper towels and crumble into small pieces.
    5. Serve:
      • Ladle the Butternut Squash Apple Soup into bowls. Garnish with bacon bits, fresh chives, and a dollop of sour cream or yogurt.
    Pro Tips
    • Roasting Enhances Flavor: Roasting the butternut squash, apples, and onions intensifies their flavors and adds a subtle caramelized sweetness to the soup.
    • Bacon Texture: For perfectly crispy bacon, cook it on a wire rack placed over a baking sheet in the oven.
    • Customize Spice Levels: Adjust the amount of ground cinnamon and nutmeg to suit your taste, balancing sweetness and warmth.
    • Make It Creamier: For a creamier texture, blend in more coconut milk or cream to your liking before serving.
