Brr, it’s cold outside. Time for some soup!
Butternut squash is one of my favourite ingredients in a soup because it gives such a creamy, smooth and silky texture. Plus that delicious sweet flavour…
This recipe also makes use of the seeds from the squash, so nothing goes to waste.
Simply fry the seeds in a little garlic olive oil for a lovely crouton alternative.
