Butternut Squash, the almighty superfood, has been part of my kitchen life for so many years. Whenever I come home, I always make sure I get to make a big pot of butternut squash soup for my family.
Here is a very simple yet very tasty recipe for Butternut Squash Soup.
1 large butternut squash, cubed
1 large potato, chopped
1 medium white onion, diced
1 1/2 litres of Vegetable/Chicken stock
1 tspn whole peppercorns
In a large saucepa, heat up olive oil and add in the onion.
Sweat them for a few minutes and add in some nutmeg and peppercorns.
When the onions have become translucent, throw in the potatoes. Cover them with the onions and fry for a few more minutes.
Add in the butternut squash and mix everything up together.
Pour in the stock, a little at a time.
I like to use chicken stock, but if you would like to keep the soup vegetarian then you can opt for the veggie stock. Either tastes lovely!
Allow to come to a bowl and then reduce to simmer for 20 minutes.
Blend and serve, piping hot.
Decorate with a sage leaf…tastes yummy too.
