Butternut Soup

Recipes by Crimsonwolf

Butternut Soup

Very simple but also very tasty and nourishing! Nice on its own or with some rice or pasta popped on the top.


1 tablespoon of sunflower oil

1 onion, chopped

4 cloves of garlic, chopped

1 butternut squash, peeled, deseeded and roughly chopped

2 pints/4 cups/1200ml of water approx

salt and pepper as desired


Fry the onion and garlic in the oil for a few minutes and then add the squash and stir well. Add water and bring to the boil - turn down to simmer and cook until the squash is tender (about 20 minutes). Alternatively, if making in advance you can slow cook by bringing to the boil and then turning off and leaving for at least an hour. Season and liquidise until smooth
