Butternut squash soup and cheesy tabasco toast

This is a delicious soup and really tops it off having some cheesy toast to go with it!.

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!
