The Best Butternut Squash Soup

Hey guys! Here is a little recipe that me and my family love to make in the winter!

Its so simple, the hardest part is waiting!

What you will need:

  • a hand blender
  • a pot
  • one butternut squash
  • one sweet potato
  • one white onion
  • one tomato
  • one veggie flavour cube
  • time!

First, you will need a butternut squash, a sweet potato, a white onion and a tomato.

Cut the squash, sweet potato and onion in half and place on a baking sheet. I like to lay down foil so clean-up is easier. Drizzle some olive oil, add salt and pepper and stick in the oven at 375 degrees for about 40 minutes. You know they are ready when you can stick a fork through!

Let the veggies cool enough to touch, and then peel the skin off of the veggies. You don’t want the veggies to cool completely, because it will be more difficult to take off the skin.

Once that is done, you want to start boiling your water. I like my soup thicker, so I only fill the pot less than half way. If you like a runnier soup, you can add more water. I also like to add a veggie flavoured cube to my water, but this is optional.

Add in all the veggies to the pot and allow it to begin to boil. Once you see that the veggies are softening, take the pot off the burner.

Take your hand pureer and begin blending everything. You want to keep at this until there is no lumps or bumps.

Add some parsley on top and you’re done! A delicious soup for you and your loved ones to enjoy.

There are so many different ways to enjoy this soup, this way is just my favourite. Some things you can add are:

  • red peppers
  • cream (to make the soup thicker)
  • a red apple (makes the soup sweeter)

I hope you enjoy!

Lots of love,

Prov.
