Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Soup

Jumper season is upon us here in the U.K. So here’s a tasty soup to cuddle up with under your favourite cosy blanket.

You will need:

  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp ground ginger (you could use fresh)
  • 2 cloves of garlic/ 2 tsp ground garlic
  • 1 tsp fresh or dry rosemary
  • 1 tsp chilli powder (if desired)
  • 1 large butternut squash
  • 4 large sweet potatoes
  • 1 large red onion
  • 1 tbsp oil (vegetable is best)
  • 500ml vegetable stock

How to make the soup:

  1. Cut all your vegetables into cubes, it doesn’t have to be especially neat- because as we all know – the best thing about a soup is the flavour and the blending!
  2. Fry the onion and garlic on a medium heat until it starts to soften, add the butternut squash and sweet potatoes and for a few minutes, or until they start to soften around the edges. Add the herbs and spices and get for a few more minutes, making sure they fully cover and infuse the vegetables.
  3. Add the stock slowly and stir. Allow it to boil for 5 minutes. And then reduce the rear to simmer for half an hour.
  4. Blend to your hearts content, or eat it as it is. For a richer taste, add some more paprika, and a swirl of cream. Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato soup
