Smooth and Creamy Butternut squash soup. Squash are still around and in season here and I just love the creamy texture without the calories contained in cream! Try it with my homemade Brown Soda Bread. I spread walnut butter on mine usually, and I feel it complements the soup 🙂
1 Butternut Squash
1 onion finely chopped
1 garlic clove finely chopped
1 sprig thyme
600ml homemade chicken stock (just get the carcass of your roast chicken with and onion, carrot, celery stick and some herbs and simmer for as long as you have time!) Alternatively use a chicken stock cube
Fry the onion and thyme in the saucepan in a little olive oil until softened. Add the garlic and chopped squash. You can season it as this stage, cover and cook on a low heat for 1o minutes.
Add the stock and cover again. Simmer until the squash has softened.
Blend and taste, adjust your seasoning at this stage if you have to.
