Squash Soup with Apples and Walnuts

From Self Magazine

Easy Entertaining host Michael Chairello tops this dish with walnuts, which offer brain-protecting benefits. Serves 2

1 teaspoon butter or olive oil
¾ cup sliced leeks
1 ½ teaspoon minced garlic
1 ½ cups, peeled, cored and diced apples
1 can Amy's Light in Sodium Butternut Squash Soup
¼ cup chopped toasted or candied walnuts

Melt butter in a large pot over moderate heat. Saute leeks until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic; sauté about 1 minute. Add apples, raise heat to high and stir until apples begin to caramelize, about 5 minutes. Add soup, bring to a simmer and cover partially. Cook until apples are tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Return to pot; reheat to serving temperature. Season with salt. Sprinkle with walnuts.
