Butternut squash is low in fat, which can aid in fat loss. Its loaded with Vitamin A, which is essential for healthy eyesight. Its full of fibre for healthy digestion. Can help boost your immune system as its packed with Vitamin C. Not forgetting to mention that is a a really tasty vegetable.

It’s delicious in homemade soup, as a potato topping substitute in cottage pie or to be included in stir fries. Its also an ideal first food for babies.

So here’s my butternut squash, pepper and coconut soup recipe…

Delicious creamy soup with a kick…

Hope you enjoy it. ❤

 

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 butternut squash
1 litre of vegetable stock (I used 1 kallo stock cube)
1 tin of full fat coconut milk
1 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp thyme
Pinch of crushed chilli or to taste. Depends if you want a kick or not 🔥
