Butternut Squash Soup

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

Ground nutmeg

1 large potato, chopped

1 medium white onion, diced

1 1/2 litres of Vegetable/Chicken stock

1 tspn  whole peppercorns

Olive oil

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.
