Butternut Squash & Apple Soup

I make this simple 3 ingredients velvety soup quite often as my family loves it. I always keep my leftover stale bread in the freezer and use them to make croutons for soup and salads.
Butternut squash & Apple soup (serves 3-4)
For the Soup
1/2 a butternut squash , about 500g and diced 
1 apple, peeled and  diced 
1 medium yellow onion, diced 

For the Croutons
2 slices of bread, cut into cubes ( best to use stale or frozen bread )
Olive oil

For the Soup 
1. Heat up a pot, add a bit of butter or olive oil. Sauté the onions for about 1 minutes till transparent. Add squash and apple. Sauté for about 1minutes.

2. Add water to cover the ingredients. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 20-30 minutes till squash is cooked and soft. 
3. Blend the soup mixture using a blender or a handheld blender till smooth. If the soup is too thick, you can add water to adjust to your preferred consistency. 
4. Season with salt and pepper.

For the Croutons
1. Heat up a pan. Add the bread cubes and drizzle with some olive oil. Sprinkle some salt and oregano. You could use your favourite herb too. Oregano is my favourite.
2. Turn the bread cubes over to brown the other sides.
3. Serve immediately with soup.
