Melt margarine in a large saucepan over low heat. Add onions and curry powder. Cover and simmer for 8 minutes or until onions are soft. Peel, seed, and chop squash and add with broth and apple to saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, reduce heat, and cover partially. Simmer for 25 minutes or until squash and apple are very tender. Strain, reserving liquid and solids. Process solids until smooth in a food processor with a steel blade or in a blender. Add 1 cup reserved liquid and continue to process until smooth. Return puréed soup to saucepan. Add enough remaining reserved soup liquid and apple juice to make desired consistency. Add salt and pepper. Heat to serving temperature and serve immediately. May substitute pumpkin or other winter squash for butternut. May substitute 1% low-fat milk for apple juice for a less sweet taste. Makes 8 servings.
