About this recipe: A low fat, high fibre, hearty, tasty butternut squash soup - inspired by M&S soup but with my own tweaks!

Serves: 4 

  • 1 butternut squash
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 potatoes (sweet, regular or both)
  • 1 medium carrot
  • 50 to 100g (2 to 4 oz) red split lentils
  • 1 or 2 cloves of garlic
  • 600ml (1 pint) vegetable stock
  • 1 to 3 tablespoons creamed coconut (or 1/4 of a tin)
  • salt and black pepper to taste

Prep:30min  ›  Cook:1hr  ›  Ready in:1hr30min 

  1. Once ingredients are roughly peeled and chopped - add to pan (apart from salt and pepper) and simmer till soft.
  2. Blitz till smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Other ideas

If you hate peeling squash - cut it in half, scoop out seeds and roast for 45 minutes in a medium oven before scooping out flesh to add to soup.
I hate celery! but if you like it - it's good to add for more flavour.
Add chilli or curry powder for a different flavour.

Make it healthier

Leave out coconut or use minimal amount for a healthy, low fat soup.

Freezing tip

Double up quantities and freeze in portion sizes.
