Best Ever Pumpkin or Butternut Squash Soup
80 mins (prep 20, cooking 60)
7 ingredients
10 servings
I made this for a dinner party recently and served with French bread it went down very well. I’m not the greatest fan of soups, but as winter is setting in, I find that this is fantastic to have on hand. I make a large amount up on the weekend and take out what I need in the morning so that it has time to defrost before I get home. Once home, 10 minutes on the stove and I have a filling and healthy or filling and luxurious dinner, or starter to stave off the hunger whilst I cook the mains.Time and quantities are relative estimates as I tend to use what I have, and just make sure that the water doesn’t evaporate from the pot. It usually takes about an hour and freezes exceptionally well. Add cream for extra richness if you like, but it is not necessary.
