Roasted butternut squash and pear soup

    1 hour 50 min

    This colourful soup is perfect for a cold day. Butternut squash can sometimes be hard to peel so that's why I prefer to roast all the vegetables (and pears) first. It's just easier and so much more flavourful this way. Serve the soup topped with a little bit of blue cheese and crusty bread on the side.
