Thai Infused Butternut Squash and Coconut Soup
The weather is cooling down fast and leaves are falling. This means it’s comforting food season and my Thai Infused Butternut Squash and Coconut Soup is an awesome autumn soup.
All my soups are dead simple to make and can last all winter in your freezer. So set some time aside, bosh the recipes out and save money and time in the near future. I mean, yes you can buy great soup from the shops these days but they cost more and are never as healthy as the soup you make!
If you like the sounds of this soup recipe, what about my Pumpkin and Apple Soup recipe?

1. Roughly chop the onions, sweet potato, coriander stalk and the neck of the butternut squash into small pieces leaving the skin on (most nutrition is within the skin but make sure you wash them first).
2. In a large pan on a medium heat, add a glug of olive oil followed by the onions, red Thai paste and lime juice on with the lid on for 5 minutes. Then add the rest of the all the ingredients and combine well.
4. While you stir the vegetables, add a pint of boiling water and the vegetable stock. Place the lid back on the large pan and leave on a medium heat for 25 minutes, or until the potato and squash are soft.
5. Once soft, season well and blitz using a food processor or handstick. Add more water to meet your desired consistency.
6. Serve hot and garnish with chilli, coriander and crushed nuts!
BIFF, BOSH, AWESOME NOSH!
