About this recipe: Delicious and very easy to make. You can use 750ml to 1L of fresh chicken stock instead of the water and stock cubes. Also works well with half as much cream cheese if you don't want it too rich.


Serves: 6 

  • 6 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 4 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 850g peeled and cubed butternut squash
  • 750ml water
  • 4 chicken stock cubes
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 2 (200g) tubs cream cheese
