Fancy a winter warming nourishing soup? Soups are a great way to use up left over vegetables and I have used frozen squash for this delightful recipe. The sweetness from the carrots and squash bring out the flavours in this soup so why not try this delightful bowl

Squash and carrot soup

•  500g chopped butternut squash-I have used frozen ready cut squash
•  2 carrots peeled and chopped
•  4 garlic cloves
•  2 tsp of stock powder or 1 stock cube
•  1/4 tsp chilli flakes
•  1/4 tsp paprika
•  1 tbs creme fraiche/cream cheese-optional

1 In a large pan add the squash, carrots and garlic along with about 1L of water and allow to simmer until squash and carrots have softened.
2 Add the stock, chilli flakes and paprika and stir until combined. The soup will start to become thick.
3 Turn of the heat, blend the soup to your desired consistency and season with plenty of black pepper.
4 Stir in some creme fraiche or cream cheese for a creamy texture if desired or leave as it is.
5 Top the soup with sunflower and pumpkin seeds for a bit of crunch.
