Heat the olive oil in a medium-sized saucepan and add onion and garlic, stirring often until tender, for around 6-8 minutes.

Add ginger and spices and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Add the carrots, apple, butternut squash, and water. Bring to a boil; cover partially and reduce to a simmer. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook until the vegetables are tender, for about 20 minutes.

Let it cool and then purée the soup in a blender until smooth. Re-heat after blending and serve sprinkled with more pepper.
