1. In a large soup pot, sauté the onions in oil on medium heat until they become translucent.
2. Add the stock, carrots, potatoes, apples and salt, pepper, nutmeg and ginger. Bring to a boil.
3. Turn down heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Take 2 ladles worth of vegetables and 1 ladle of stock and blend in a blender or food processor until smooth or you can puree the entire pot. Return to soup pot and stir together before serving.
For extra flavour - try roasting the root vegetables in the oven for 45 min to an hour (at 360F).
