Easy Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut squash season is here. They are so cheap and easy to cook. I wish you a pleasant week, ahead!

Heat the olive oil and butter in a pot over medium high heat. Add the onions, carrots and chilli flakes

and sweat for 10 minutes, then dd the butternut squash, and stock (or water and bouillon cube), bring to the boil

and simmer for 15-20 minutes until butternut squash and carrot is cooked and tender. Blend the hot soup until smooth, add a knob of butter and cream and blitz to combine. Adjust seasoning and serve the soup with a dollop of sour cream. If you prefer hot soup return it to the pot and heat until piping hot.
