Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion (50 grams)
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • 3 thyme sprigs leaves only
  • 1 medium butternut squash (about 700 grams)
  • 2 large carrots (150 grams)
  • 2 apples (Granny Smith apples work well) (100 grams)
  • 750 ml chicken or vegetable stock - or warm water
  • ½ cup coconut milk (120 ml)

Instructions

  • Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan on a low heat.
  • Add the diced onion and crushed garlic, and thyme leaves. Cook for a minute or two until soft.
  • Add the peeled and chopped butternut squash and carrot. Stir so that all the pieces are coated in the oil. Leave to sweat for 5 minutes in the saucepan.
  • Finally add in the peeled and chopped apple pieces, together with the chicken stock or water.
  • Bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes until all the chunks are soft and cooked through. There should be just enough water to cover the vegetable chunks.
  • Using an immersion blender or in a separate mixer, blend until you get a smooth, creamy soup.
  • Finally add in the coconut milk. Bring the soup to the boil again, stir well and then remove it from the hob.
  • Serve with crusty bread or grated cheese.
