Back to Basics Butternut Soup

Preparation Time: 5-10 minutes    Servings:  4
Cooking Time: 60 minutes

When it’s getting close to shopping day and there’s only a few items laying around this is one of my go-to recipes. Butternuts last a long time and we always seem to have one waiting to be used. This soup uses 4 ingredients, serves 4 and is DELICIOUS.



1 butternut, diced
1 onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 cups vegetable stock / 1 stock cube
Seasoning to taste


  • Fry the onion and garlic in a little oil over a medium heat until translucent and fragrant.
  • Add the diced butternut, stir well and fry for a couple of minutes.
  • Add the vegetable stock, turn the heat down to low.
  • Stir well, cover, and leave to simmer. The longer the soup simmers the better but let it simmer for at least 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  • Serve hot and enjoy!

Serve with fresh, crusty rolls and enjoy this hearty, home-made soup.
