Butternut Squash Soup

I’ve never ever liked eating butternut squash soup, even though I’ve never tried it. Then once when we were out for lunch, my mom ordered butternut squash soup. I thought, “Gross“. She insisted I tried some (practically forced a spoonful down my throat) and whaddya know? I liked it! I just had to make it myself so I could have some anytime I wanted. And this is the easiest soup recipe ever. Plus, it’s great for a cold winter’s day when you’re freezing your butt off!

Ingredients
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp Lurpak butter
1 butternut squash, cut into chunks
1 onion diced
2 cloves of garlic chopped (as a garlic-lover, I used about 5 or 6)
1 cube chicken stock
1 litre water
Salt and pepper to taste

Method

  1. Fry garlic and onion in olive oil and butter until light brown.

    Frying garlic and onion
  2. Add squash into pot and fry until slightly cooked.

  3. Add water, chicken stock, salt and pepper and boil on low fire until squash is well-cooked.
  4. Blend the soup with a hand blender.

  5. Serve soup with buttered bread! (I love bread with butter)

      @jas: Not weird at all! Can’t have soup without buttered bread :)
