Ingredients

How to make it

  • Over a medium heat, add a dash of oil and sauté the onion for 4-5 minutes, or until it starts to clear.
  • Add the garlic and chillies, and continue to sauté for 2 minutes.
  • Add the Butternut Squash, and sauté for a further 3 minutes. Get the kettle boiling.
  • Add the water and crumble in the stock cube.
  • Over the medium heat, this should come back to the boil fairly quickly. Reduce the heat to leave it gently simmering. Partially cover, and leave to cook for 15-20 minutes (until the squash is soft), stirring occasionally.
  • When cooked, take off the heat and blend.
  • Add a good whack of freshly ground black pepper, and a touch of salt to taste.
  • Serve! I feel it's good enough like this, but some like it creamier. You can add a dash of cream or yoghurt at this point and, if you fancy it, dress it with the watercress (I think the peppery taste compliments the mellow squash nicely). Mmmm.

    Ah, thanks Nemo! Like the fact that you're home growing things for it too... awesome :). And now it's getting towards Winter (well, it feels like it), I've got to add another soup ASAP... Woo!

    Highly recommended!! You will be happy to know that this has become a family favourite and we eat it about once a week now that winter is on it's way! :D We have tried just butternut, just pumpkin, a mixture of both and yesterday I even made it with some giant curly zucchini we have growing in the garden! (had to add a teaspoon of sugar to that one to get the same effect but it was great!) We LOVE it! ;) Thanks a million.
