‘I’d butter nut eat too much’ – Easy Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Hi Everyone! In the past couple of weeks we’ve been settling back into our routines at home after our time away. It’s peak autumn here in the UK, and there’s nothing like a warming soup on a chilly November evening…

As butternut squash is now in season, we thought it’s the best time to make this roasted butternut squash soup. The squash is always a bit of a pain to peel and chop, but it’s all worth it – trust me! This soup is so easy to make and you only need a few cupboard ingredients for it. You can serve it with homemade croutons, or if you’re lazy like me, with a slice of toast & vegan butter. Enjoy!
