Butternut Squash Soup

Posted By Kerri

We had a butternut squash at work last week that looked a bit ugly on the outside and was rejected by our customers so I bought it, knowing that the inside would be fine. I must be a glutton for punishment since I decided to turn it in to soup but, in order to minimise the chances of disaster, relied on a recipe found by Stephen.

Of course, I didn’t follow the recipe as closely as I should have done and ignored the advice to add potato since I didn’t have any. I also thought it would be a good idea to add a lot more chilli than the recipe stated which meant I had to rescue the finished dish with some milk. It turned out quite well though and the roasted seeds added a good crunch. Smoky chorizo is a classic partner for sweet squash and this was as good as always. I reserved some of the cooking oil to drizzle on top of the soup which looked pretty and intensified the flavour a little too.

Oh, and that’s a toasted bagel on the side.

  1. Wow, that chorizo oil is dramatic. We usually top our butternut squash soup with bacon, but the chorizo is a nice touch.

  2. Oh wow – look at the colours!! I love the addition of the chorizo. I never put potato in my butternut soup and it’s never done any harm 😉

    What I served with my chicken is orzo with broccoli and a miso-tahini dressing.
