Squash and Sweet Potato Soup


Squash and Sweet Potato Soup
This recipe really was created on a whim, inspired by a late visit to Waitrose on New Years Eve. On offer was 3 x 350g bags of pre-prepared Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato cubes priced down to 10p each. Not surprisingly I snapped them up. Unfortunately I missed out on the gammon priced down to £2 (it has been £9).

I remembered Nigella's Sweet Potato and Squash soup in Express and set out to make something similar, but in a much larger quantity and with some seasoning tweaks. What I ended up with was a fantastically flavoured soup and enough to keep me going for most of the week, which is just as well as I still feel rubbish!

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING THE SQUASH AND SWEET POTATO SOUP

  • Make it spicy by adding a teaspoon of dried chilli flakes.
  • The soup can be frozen so why not make double and freeze half.
  • Serve with a swirl of natural yogurt and fresh coriander.

  4. Your soup sounds lovely. Can't beat a good squash soup I reckon. We had squash and parsnip soup tonight with loads of garlic to try and keep the bugs at bay - that was pretty good too.

    Get well soon and Happy New Year
