Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

’tis the season for squash, so here is a very quick and simple recipe for you!

Butternut Squash Soup
serves 3-4 

1 butternut squash
1 medium onion, diced
a few glugs of olive oil
small knob of unsalted butter
dash of cumin seeds
vegetable stock – up to 400ml
sprinkle of cayenne pepper
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 180degC

Slice butternut squash in half, lightly drizzle with olive oil and season with pepper (salt too if you aren’t sharing your food with your baby!)

Roast in oven for about 45 minutes, or until knife can easily be inserted into the squash

Once the squash is roasted and cooling, heat another glug of oil with butter in a saucepan and soften the diced onion

When you are able, scoop out the flesh of the butternut squash and add to the saucepan with the onion

Add cumin seeds (I guess I use about a teaspoon) and mix together in saucepan over a medium heat

Use as much stock as needed to cover the squash. I tend to add a stock cube and just top up with boiled water, topping up again once blended if the texture is too thick

Blend with handblender or processor to create a smooth soup

Season with salt, pepper and a dash of cayenne pepper as desired

Optional: serve with yorkshire pudding for baby :)
