Ingredients
 

  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 1 onion peeled and roughly chopped
  • 500 g carrots roughly chopped
  • 1/2 butternut squash deseeded, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tsp ginger root grated
  • 1 litre vegetable stock
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 200 ml milk optional

Instructions
 

  • Heat the oil to a medium heat in a large pan.
  • Add the onion, butternut squash and the carrots and stir them around for 5 minutes, do not let the onion colour. Add the grated ginger and stir through the vegetables for a minute.
  • Add the stock and bring to the boil, turn down the heat until the soup is gently simmering.
  • Season with a tsp salt and a few grinds of pepper, you can adjust later if required.
  • Cook until the vegetables are soft about 20-30 minutes.
  • Take the soup off the heat and leave to cool slightly.
  • Puree the soup either with a stick blender straight into the pot or using a blender or food processor.
  • The soup will be very thick, add milk until the soup is the consistency of thick cream.
  • Taste for seasoning and adjust as required.
  • Serve with a swirl of cream (optional)

Notes

If you do not wish to use milk then thin the soup with more vegetable stock.
