The dark nights have well and truly set in meaning cosy nights in are firmly under way.
Eating healthily can take a backseat in the colder months so to conquer this I’ve been making big batches of soup.
Root veggies are flavour of the month and whilst I carve my pumpkin for Halloween I decided to make a batch of butternut squash and leek soup. Yummy.
I’m quite lazy and just shove my ingredients, chopped and seeeded into a pan with a veggie stock cube and a pinch of pepper to flavour.
And before you know it, you have a big batch of flavourful soup ready to take to work for lunch.
All you need is –
- 1 butternut quash
- 2 leeks
- Veggie stockcube
- Hot water
- Salt and pepper to season
Chop your veggies, simmer in a pan, add the stock and then blend till smooth with a hand blender. Easy lunch recipe with little hassle!
