Guest Post: Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Soup Recipe

Hi! I'm Polly and I blog over at Pixie Mama. I'm so excited to be here guest blogging for Kami today!

I thought that I would share with you one of our absolute favorite soups ever: Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato. The girls all adore it, and I could happily eat it all year round. It's also perfect over pasta too!  Here is my recipe for it:

1 large butternut squash
1 extra large sweet potato
2 red onions
garlic cloves to taste
1 litre veg stock
coconut milk

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4

Cut the butternut squash in half and remove the seeds. Brush with oil and place on a tray.

Meanwhile, saute the onion and garlic until softened.

Bake the squash and sweet potato until browned and soft through. Then scoop all the flesh out, and place in a pan with the sauteed onions and garlic and half of the stock. Cook through for 10 minutes, then blend adding more liquid as needed (depending how thick/thin you like your soup)

Add some coconut milk if you like or some cream.

Heat back through, and serve with a salad and crusty bread :)

I hope you enjoy it!

  1. Thanks for having me Kami <3

  2. I'd make that! I'd probably leave it a bit more chunky since the texture of pureed soups creep me the eff out... but that squash.. DELISH!!
