RecipesPosted by M Rahman Tue, December 18, 2012 12:55:15


- 2 tbsp olive oil

- sprig of rosemary

- 2 bay leaves

- 3 garlic cloves crushed

- 1/2 medium chilli

- 2 carrots, chopped

- 2 celery sticks

- 1 medium onion, chopped

- pinch cumin seeds

- 1/2 tsp chilli powder

- pinch smoked paprika

- 2 pints veg stock

- 1 large potato, peeled and cubed

- 1 medium butternut squash, peeled and cubed

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan and add garlic, chilli, paprika, bay, rosemary and cumin seeds and heat for 30 seconds (do not color, you only want to release the flavors).
  2. Add all the remaining ingredients apart from the stock.
  3. Saute the vegetables for 2 minutes until they are fully coated in the spices.
  4. Add the stock, turn down the heat and allow the soup to simmer for about 45 mins.
  5. Allow the soup to cool and then blend with a hand whisk, until free of lumps. If the soup is too thick add a little more stock until you have the desired consistency.
  6. Reheat when ready to serve and eat with a big hunk of crusty bread, delicious!
