Spiced Apple and Squash Soup

20131018-192547.jpg

Our lovely friend Sandra gave us a homegrown squash from her allotment last week (there’s nothing like homegrown veg!), and I’ve been looking for something tasty to make with it. I’ve recently discovered the recipe finder on the Waitrose website and decided to see what it suggested – this soup recipe is apparently one of the most popular recipes on the site at the moment! If you want to view the original recipe, and find more new ones, click here. This is a really fruity soup and the chilli give it a nice kick – perfect for Autumn. And you can make it on a week night, as this takes less than half an hour from preparation to table!

Ingredients

1 tbsp oil
1 brown onion, chopped
¼ tsp chilli flakes
½ tsp ground cinnamon
1 butternut squash, deseeded and diced
2 Braeburn apples, cored and diced
1 litre vegetable stock

Method

1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and fry the onion for 3–4 minutes. Add the chilli, cinnamon, squash and apples and cook for 1-2 minutes.

2. Add the stock, cover and bring to the boil, then simmer for 15 minutes until tender.

3.Purée using a hand held blender and season to taste. Enjoy with some fresh crusty bread.

      Definitely! It’s a fairly sweet soup but I love the chilli kick 🙂
