Roasted butternut squash soup
There's just something so cosy about eating butternut squash soup! It feels like the perfect Autumn/Winter lunch. I love soup but sometimes find it a bit of a faff to make, which is why I have recently started making tray bake soups (such as this traybake tomato and basil soup)- throw everything together and roast it and you get a lovely rich flavour, but no pre-frying or standing over the hob!
The potato added to this one gives it a creaminess without adding cream, and it's lovely ...
Honey-roasted butternut squash and sweet potato soup
I created this recipe for Devon Life magazine , I love squash soups, especially in autumn, it really feels like 'comfort food'. I think that roasting the squash and sweet potato in a bit of honey gives it such a rich flavour.
I tend to always have a butternut squash and some sweet potatoes in the cupboard as they keep so well- this makes it the perfect lunch to whip up when I haven't had the chance to get to the shops!
Slow-cooker butternut squash and ginger soup
This is my favourite soup to make as I always have a butternut squash around (because they last for so long it's perfect back-up food) and it really is so easy to do. The ginger adds spice and lovely flavour, perfect for a warming Autumn or Winter lunch.
Butternut squash soup and cheesy tabasco toast
I love butternut squash soup as its so easy to make and always tastes delicious. As butternut squash keep so well, it's also one of those things really quick and easy to whip up when you haven't planned your meals- I always have one in reserve for a last minute lunch or dinner!
The soup's lovely on it's own, but the cheesy tabasco toast goes so well with it that I often use my Healthy extra A & B for the day with it!
