Butternut Squash Soup


3 tbsp sunflower oil
½ kg butternut squash, cut into 3-4 cm cubes
1 large onion, chopped
1 tbsp rosemary
1.25 litres of vegetable stock
Salt and pepper
250ml of cream/soya cream (optional)
Parsley to garnish


  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan to a medium high heat.
  2. Add the onion and butternut squash pieces to the pan and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until the onion is translucent.
  3. Add the rosemary and a sprinkle of salt and pepper and continue to cook for a couple of minutes.
  4. Add the stock and bring to the boil, then lower the heat to a simmer.
  5. Half cover with a lid and cook for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. When the pumpkin pieces begin to disintegrate, remove the pan from the hob and let the soup sit for 5-10 minutes.
  7. Using a hand blender, purée the soup, or alternatively allow the soup to cool, pour into a blender and purée.
  8. Return the soup to the hob and, if desired, add cream.
