Butternut Soup Recipe

During the winter season, we’re taking the opportunity to experiment with a variety of delicious and healthy meals that can be included in a two-week meal plan. These homemade recipes are ideal for providing you with energy-filled days.

Kicking off our menu is the renowned butternut soup. It has been tried, tested, and proven to be a nutritious choice, particularly on cold winter nights.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 15 ml of soft butter (We highly recommend Lurpak, our favorite brand)
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 5 ml or 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1 butternut squash, peeled and cut into cubes (If you prefer, you can use pre-cut butternut squash to save time and effort. The peeling and cutting process can be quite time-consuming!)
  • 750 ml of water
  • 3 tsps of Inpaarman’s vegetable stock pot
  • 250 ml of fresh cream

The Recipe:

  1. Begin by melting the butter in a pot. Then, sauté the onion and garlic until they become soft. Next, add the cinnamon to the mix, ensuring everything is well combined to achieve a flavorful and slightly sweet taste.
  2. Incorporate the chopped and peeled butternut squash into the pot, along with the water and vegetable stock pot. Remember to use 1 tsp of vegetable stock pot for every cup of water. Stir everything together thoroughly.
  3. Allow the mixture to boil until the butternut squash becomes tender.
  4. Remove the pot from the heat and transfer the contents to a blender. Blend until you achieve a smooth consistency, and this is the point where you add the fresh cream to achieve the perfect texture.

That’s it! You now have the ideal meal for a chilly day. Serve the butternut soup with hot garlic or French bread to complete the experience.
