Roasted Butternut Squash & Tomato Soup

Possibly one of my favourite and easiest soup recipes my Butternut Squash & Tomato Soup, all roasted in the oven!

What is it about soup?

I love this soup so much, I could eat it everyday, I hope you’ll feel the same 🙂 .

Whenever I’m travelling all I crave is a bowl of homemade soup when I get home. There is something so homely about it!

And what I also love is with soup you get to use up all those sad looking vegetables in the bottom or your fridge that have probably seen better days?

Roasted Butternut Squash & Tomato Soup

 

This delicious soup is easily made as ALL the vegetables are roasted in a large tray in the oven.

This somehow has a lovely way of concentrating the flavours and it keeps your hob clean :-).

Double Win!

Quite a sweet and garlicy soup but oh so very delicious.

I really do love this soup and tend to make a very big batch. This means I can freeze portions ready for lunches in the week.

 

Adapt your Butternut Squash soup?

A very warming and wintery dish…. perfect for cold weather!

You could make it with  just Roasted Butternut Squash and have a Butternut Squash Soup or you could do what I do and add Tomatoes, lovely!

You can also adapt any way you like?  

Throw in any root veggies of your choice maybe? What I do need to tell you is it’s the roasting of the veggies that gives it its immense flavour, really it does!

Have a go and let me know how you get on, leave me a comment below the recipe.
