BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP

I absolutely love this soup, I always make a big batch as it will last a few days if you store in a lunch box in the fridge. It’s such a simple way to stay on track with healthy eating during the week as all you need to do is heat up a portion in the microwave, or pre-heat and take it to work with you in a flask! and it tastes divine!

INGREDIENTS:

1 Butternut squash
1 large onion
1 garlic
1 and a half pint of low sodium chicken stock
1 tbsp dried parsley
A little drizzle of olive oil
Salt & Pepper
Pinch of chilli flakes for heat lovers (optional)

PREP TIME: 7 min, COOKING TIME: 30 min, SERVINGS: 6 – 8

HOW TO MAKE:

-Roughly chop up the Butternut squash, onion and garlic

-In a large deep casserole dish, pour in a splash of olive oil and fry off the vegetables over a medium heat – just for a few minutes for the onions to soften and caramelised

-Pour in the stock and parsley and mix well

-Season with salt and pepper and leave over a medium to low heat for around 25-30 minutes (until the squash is cooked and soft)

-Take off the heat and let it cool slightly, then with a hand blender, blend until you have a smooth soup consistency (add more water if it’s too thick)
