Now it’s getting colder the chunky knits and snuggly socks are all coming out, there is definitely a little nip in the air.
So what better way to help warm up than a big bowl of tasty Butternut Squash soup made from seasonal vegetables.
It’s a super simple recipe and my kids love it.
1 butternut squash or other type of squash including pumpkin
3 large carrots
1 large onion
1 had full of red lentils
1 pint of vegetable stock
1 clove of garlic
1 teaspoon of chilli powder (optional)
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 handful of red lentils to thicken (optional)
Chop all the ingredients and place in a large pan top with the vegetable stock bring to the boil and simmer on low for 30 min’s or until all the vegetables are softened.
