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!
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
- Fry garlic and onion in olive oil and butter until light brown.
- Add squash into pot and fry until slightly cooked.
- Add water, chicken stock, salt and pepper and boil on low fire until squash is well-cooked.
- Blend the soup with a hand blender.
- Serve soup with buttered bread! (I love bread with butter)
