Viccy's Scrummy Yummy Butternut Squash Soup

Viccy's Scrummy Yummy Butternut Squash Soup

x1 onion
x1 red pepper
x3 carrots
Vegetable oil
x6 medium potatoes
x1 large butternut squash (or a pumpkin, when in season)
x2 vegetable stock cube
Salt & pepper

Finely mince the onion, pepper and carrots and gently fry in a smidge of vegetable oil until soft. **I love my Pampered Chef hand chopper to finely mince veggies**



Peel and chop the potatoes and butternut squash into 1" cubes.

Boil the kettle, and add the stock cubes to a mug. Add freshly boiled water to the mug to create a liquid stock. Add this to the saucepan with the softened veggies. Stir.

Add the potato and butternut squash cubes, then enough freshly boiled water to just cover all the veggies.

Simmer for approx 30 minutes. Leave to cool slightly, then blitz with a hand blender. You may need to add more water if it's too thick. Add salt & pepper to taste, and serve.



Freezeable too, so I tend to make a big batch so I can freeze to enjoy later in the season.

Serves approx 6 - 8 portions

Enjoy! What's your favourite soup?

  5. I just made a quick and easy pumpkin soup the other day--the lazy ladys way--a can of pumpkin, some half and half and some pumpkin pie seasoning--heated it all up in a sauce pan-stirring consistantly and voila! Your soup sounds delicious but I am so darn lazy and I am cooking only for me--

  12. I am a little nervous about butternut squash. We accidentally planted it in our garden this year instead of the kind that is normally panted so I have a basket full in my basement. I should just suck it up and try this soup! Sounds yummy!
