Ash and I are obsessed with this butternut squash soup. So much so that we made it two weekends in a row! We first tried something really similar at Jamie Oliver's restaurant and then we decided to recreate it for ourselves. It's got a kick of chili to it so it's heat-hot and spicy-hot. It's super easy to make and a really fun way to spend an afternoon together in the kitchen.
Check out the pics of the process below -
First we walked to the local bakery to get some fresh bread ...
celery, garlic, onion, chilies, carrots, butternut squash. (all you have to do is chop everything up and chuck it in the pot with some olive oil. peel the squash and then cut into cubes)
other necessary ingredients
Making the veggie stock - we just used a few cubes and boiling water then added it to our chopped veg and spices.
at this point the whole apartment was smelling amazing!
(simmer for about 45 min)
After letting the soup cool we blended it and then reheated it. We added a bit more stock to make the consistency just right, at first it was more smoothie than soup, we wanted it thick but not that thick.
Heavenly. mmm I want some more right now!
