Slice all veggies and apple into equal size pieces.
Heat oil in medium sauce pan over medium-high heat, add onion, potato, carrots and apple. Add in crushed red pepper and salt/pepper to taste.
Cook, stirring occasionally until everything is slightly tender, yet still has a bite to it. Once you've reached this point, add in 1/2 the thyme and let cook for another minute or so.
Add the water, cover and allow to boil over med-high heat until everything is very soft. It's important to cook until very soft versus fork tender to ensure a smooth consistency.
Turn off the heat and allow to cool slightly in pan. Place everything in blender jar and secure the lid. Blend until smooth.
