Mahali Mzuri: Soup for the soul

Combining the delicious flavours of butternut squash, apple and warming spices, this creamy soup is the ultimate comfort food with an amazing twist - curry, of course, makes everything just a little better.

Our tasty and simple soup recipe is one to make time and time again.
**INGREDIENTS (Serves 6)** 45g Butter 2 Onions, chopped 500g Butternut squash, peeled and diced 1 Apple peeled and diced 45g Flour 10g Curry powder 7.5g Cumin powder 750ml Water 37.5g Chicken stock powder 375ml Full cream milk or coconut milk 1 Orange: grated rind and juice Garnish 125g or ½ cup fresh coriander leaves Freshly ground black pepper and olive oil


  • Sauté the onions in the butter until soft and flavourful. Add the butternut and apple and sauté to absorb the butter and develop the vegetable flavours (about 3 minutes), stirring lightly from time to time. Add the flour, cumin and curry powder, blending with the vegetables.
  • Add the water, chicken stock powder, milk, orange rind and juice. Simmer slowly for 15-20 minutes until the vegetables are tender.
  • Liquidise the solids with a hand held blender or in a food processor. Taste, and add a bit more salt if needed.
  • Dish into soup bowls, sprinkle with fresh coriander leaves and grind black pepper on top. Add a swirl of olive oil if you like.
  • Season to taste.
