quick, easy and delicious butternut soup!

If you’re looking for the easiest, quickest and most delicious butternut soup you’ll ever eat – you’ve found the right place.

If not, I’ll see you on Monday for another fashion post!

I created this soup the other day when there was LITERALLY nothing in the house; aside from one lonely butternut and an onion. It tasted so good – I ate ALL of it. I would say it yields about 2 large or 4 small portions (or one… for me).

 So what you are gonna need to make this amazing concoction is:

  • 1 butternut
  • Nutmeg
  • Cinnamon
  • Salt
  • 30ml Oil
  • 1 Onion
  • 3 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • Anything you want to have with it – I topped mine with toasted sunflower seeds!

MEDTHOD:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Cut up your butternut in similar size pieces and place it on a baking tray.

  3. Coat the butternut pieces with your oil of choice and sprinkle with the nutmeg, cinnamon and salt. Place in the oven for 30 minutes – turning the pieces half way through.
  4. After 20 minutes of relaxing, while the butternut cooks, place your onion, garlic and oil into your Thermomix and chop on speed 5 for 5 seconds. Then sauté for 7min/120°C/speed 1.

  5. Add your roasted butternut (after removing the skin) to the onion in the Thermomix and add your cup of boiling water.
