Squash, Apple and Onion Soup (Revised)

This is a lovely thick and healthy soup. A good way to add fruit and vegetables to your diet. Add garlic if wanted. I used to fry the onion, and garlic when I used it, in a little olive oil before adding the other ingredients, but I found it makes no real difference to the flavour. Serve with crusty bread and butter or cream cheese.
