Butternut squash Soup

I am seriously addicted to home made soup at the moment. Like a little bit obsessed. I think I've had it for lunch almost every day for the last 2 weeks. It is so easy and tastes so good and soup and Autumn are such a beautiful pairing. Butternut squash soup has to be one of my favourites. It's just so good and you can add so many things to it.

To make this an even easier meal I got my mum a soup maker for Christmas last year because I am a top daughter. You need one in your life (a soup maker not a daughter)

Serves 4

1 Butternut Squash
Red Onion
500ml vegetable Stock
smoked paprika
chilli powder

Now me and my mum are not great at measuring as you can see by my ingredients list. We just whack it all in and hope for the best. So far so good though. With the handy soup maker, which I recommend for all of my fellow sick people - it is soo easy, you just chuck everything in put the lid on & turn it on. Then in 21mins you have delicious hot soup. Magic.

However you can make it the good old fashioned way and just cook your veg & then add the stock and bring to the boil and simmer for a bit. Then you just blend it all up to delicious soupy goodness. Seriously does it get any easier

Then you can add whatever seasoning takes your fancy. I am obsessed with Smoked Paprika at the moment. I use so much of this stuff and it is soooo good in this soup. Heaven in a bowl. I also like to add some chilli powder for a bit of a kick. I only add it to my bowl though because my family are such babies (soz mum).

And that is the end of the least detailed and probably least helpful recipe you have ever read. Seriously just bung it all in, blend and season. Make it up as you go along. You can also add celery (vom), potato, pepper. The choices are endless.

Go make all the soups.
