    1. Heat the olive oil in a casserole over medium-high heat. Cook and stir the garlic and onion in the oil until soft and translucent. Add the butternut squash and corn and cook for 3 more minutes. Pour the stock into the pot and bring to the boil; season with basil and black pepper.
    2. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer uncovered until the squash is tender, about 15 minutes. Remove the casserole pot from the heat and using a hand blender, or working in batches with a counter top blender, process the soup until smooth. Stir in the yoghurt and nutmeg.
