Our tasty and simple soup recipe is one to make time and time again.
**INGREDIENTS (Serves 6)**
2 Onions, chopped
500g Butternut squash, peeled and diced
1 Apple peeled and diced
10g Curry powder
7.5g Cumin powder
37.5g Chicken stock powder
375ml Full cream milk or coconut milk
1 Orange: grated rind and juice
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.
