Midweek Morsels: My favourite butternut squash soup

Kristina has come up with a wonderful idea. To post a recipe a week and then share it with other people on her blog every Wednesday! I love cooking so much that for a while I toyed with the idea of opening a new blog of recipes. But this is easier and much less time-consuming :P

So, since Kristina has posted a soup's recipe, I thought I'd share one of my favourite soup recipe that I came up with. It's really easy. It's probably more suitable for autumn but I can still find butternut squashes in the shops so you might too.

Super Yummy Butternut Squash Soup:

half butternut squash (or a whole one if it's small) peeled and cut in big chunks
1 onion, peeled and roughly chopped
1 or 2 celery stalks, washed and cut in big pieces
2 or 3 carrots, roughly chopped
1 organic chicken stock cube
sour cream or yogurt
What to do:
Put all the ingredients, except the optional ones, in a big pan and cover them with boiling water and simmer till the carrots are soft (maybe 15-20 mins or so). Then blend everything. Pour in some sour cream or yogurt to give it a bit of a sharp taste and sprinkle on some parsley (although I always forget about that one).
It's very yummy!

ps: the picture is not mine! I stole it from here.

Delicious! I had a butternut squash and coconut soup at my favourite cafe last winter, and loved it, but sadly haven't seen it on the menu since. I'll be trying this recipe for certain. Thanks!
