Serves 4 to 6

INGREDIENTS

2 large butternut squashes, peeled and cubed

1 tsp olive oil, plus 1 tsp

1 large onion, peeled and diced

4 cups vegetable broth

¼ tsp cayenne pepper

Sea salt

freshly ground pepper

PREP

Preheat oven to 400°.

METHOD

Place butternut squash on a sheet tray and toss with 1 teaspoon olive oil, sea salt and freshly ground pepper.

Roast for 25 minutes, until soft – a knife should easily cut through it.

Meanwhile, in a large pot over medium, heat olive oil until it simmers. Add diced onions and cook until translucent.

Once the squash is roasted, add to the pot. Add cayenne pepper, vegetable broth and bring pot to a boil. Reduce heat and let cook for 20 minutes.

Remove from heat and let cool.

Using an immersion blender, blend until smooth.

Notes + Serving Tips

Season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.

For a little extra kick add a ¼ teaspoon of fresh ginger or curry powder.

Crisp up some sage and toast some pepitas for a delicious garnish.
