Delicious Two Ingredient Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

We’re having a home day, trust me when I say that it’s a very rare and welcome treat for Boo and I to not have to be anywhere or even go out for that matter. Our home days follow a very simple yet much loved formula: lazy snuggles in bed, pancakes for breakfast, a bit of pottering, and a fair few disney films thrown in for good message. One thing I tend to try and do when we’re having a home day is catch up with some baking; today I made banana bread because it’s universally accepted that there will always be a bunch of bananas festering in the fruit bowl – please tell me I’m not the only one – and banana bread is perfect to slice and freeze for a yummy after school treat for Boo.

I always like to make the most of the oven being on for an hour, so as I glanced round the kitchen for ideas I spotted a butternut squash again lurking next to the fruit bowl and then I remembered the ridiculously easy recipe for soup and decided to make that for our lazy lunch.

To make the soup you will need: 1 butternut squash and 650ml vegetable stock (I made mine with 2 Knorr veg stock cubes for a thicker consistency).

1. Start by cutting the butternut squash in half, and again twice more so you have eight pieces. Spoon out the seeds and roast in the oven on a lined baking tray for 45-55 minutes at 160C.

2. Once soft, remove from the oven, allow to cool slightly then peel the skin off and place in a medium saucepan.

3. Add the vegetable stock to the butternut squash over a low heat and use a stick blender to combine.

And that’s it! I’m by no means great cook (I think I wear the title lazy Nigella very well!) and I have to give credit to my Mama for the recipe. The soup is a guaranteed crowd pleaser and is so creamy and full of flavour, it’s crazy to think that it has just two ingredients.
