Spiced butternut squash soup

Posted by on April 27, 2015 at 12:55 AM

I adapted an existing recipe today, and made a delicious butternut squash soup. Filling and tasty, it was a lovely lunch, teamed with oat cakes and cashew butter. The original recipe calls for leek, not celery, and has added butterbeans at the end (2 cans for the recipe) but I added in lentils for some protein instead, as I had no beans handy. 

This soup is a favourite of my daughter's, so don't be afraid to give it to a baby, toddler or child - just mind the salt content of the stock (or make your own). I was surprised that she enjoys the fairly strong flavours in this soup, but anytime I make it she eats it all!

Serves 4 - 6 adults


- 1 butternut squash, peeled and cubed

- 3 carrots, peeled and diced

- 3 stalks celery, finely chopped

- 200g red lentils (very well rinsed and ideally soaked prior to cooking)

- 2 - 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped 

- 1 - 2 inches of fresh ginger, finely chopped

- 1 tsp each of ground cumin, coriander, chilli powder and garam masala

- black pepper to taste

- 1 litre chicken stock

- 1 can coconut milk


1. Add all the vegetables, stock and spices to a large pot and bring to the boil. 

2. Turn down the heat and simmer the soup for about 30 minutes. 

3. Add the coconut milk, mix in well and allow to simmer for about 5 minutes. 

4. Blend the soup and enjoy!

This soup also freezes well, so you can freeze it in individual portions.
