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, not least the addition of some basil pesto swirled in at the end. What I ended up with was a fantastically flavoured soup (especially with the pesto!) and enough to keep me going for most of the week, which is just as well as I still feel rubbish!


| Serves: 6  | Prep Time: 5 Minutes | Cook Time: 30 Minutes  | Total Time: 35 Minutes |


  • 3 x 350g packets of Squash and Sweet Potato cubes
  • 2 litres Vegetable Stock
  • 1/2 TSP Nutmeg
  • 1TSP Cinnamon
  • Pepper


  • Step 1: For the soup, put all of the ingredients (excluding the pepper) in a large pan, bring to the boil then simmer for about 20 minutes until vegetables are tender. Liquidise with a stick blender until smooth. Season with pepper.

  1. Oh what a shame you should be ill on your holidays. Hope you feel better soon, I'm sure this soup will be helping you leaps and bounds ;0)

  2. That soup is full of so many of my favorite things. Hope you feel better

  3. What a comforting-looking soup. I do hope you'll be on the mend again soon.

  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

  5. Hope you feel much better soon.

    Delicious soup.

  6. It's cold and rainy here today - a big bowl of this soup would be perfect.

  7. Hope you feel better soon - I'm sure a good soup is just as helpful as medicine!

  8. Your sweet potato soup reminds me the my mom made for me. It was great, with sausage added it is a complete meal in a big bowl. Nice. I will try to make it myself with your recipe :)
