£0.85 per portion.

You can use butternut or or a pumpkin. I recommend using Cholula Chipotle Hot Sauce!

Directions:
  • 1

    1. Preheat the oven at 200c. Then, on a medium heat in a large pan, add a glug of olive oil followed by the onions, 2 tsp of paprika, seasoning and the butternut squash pieces (add the chilli seeds for more heat). Combine well and cook for 5 minutes.

    2. While you stir the vegetables, add the chicken stock. Lid on and leave on a medium heat for 25 minutes, or until soft.

    3. While the veggies cooking, add the drained chickpeas, paprika and black pepper to a tray, followed by the bacon strips. Bang in the oven for 15 minutes or until crispy.

    4. Once soft, season well, add the chipotle sauce and blitz using a food processor or handstick. Add more water to meet your desired consistency.

    5. Serve hot and garnish with chilli, 2 bacon strips, roasted chickpeas and a dash of single cream!
