Squash Apple Soup

I went to a ladies church activity a while ago about health & fitness. One of the speakers shared a recipe for Squash Apple Soup that she loves, and it only has 97 calories per 1 cup serving! I was telling a couple of friends about it, so I thought I'd post it here for everyone.

Squash Apple Soup
3 celery ribs, chopped
1 large apple, peeled & chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. butter
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 cans (14-1/2 oz) chicken broth, divided
2 pkg (12 oz) frozen cooked winter squash, thawed

1. Saute celery, apple & onion in oil & butter until tender. Stir in garlic, poultry seasoning, salt & pepper; cook 1 minute longer.
2. In a blender, combine 1 c. broth and vegetable mixture; cover & process until smooth. Return to pan; add squash and remaining broth.
3. Heat through. Serve with croutons & grated Parmesan cheese if desired.
