Today is my first full day working on the blog, after giving up my career of 15 years as a hairdresser. Last week was quite an emotional week saying goodbye to clients and work colleagues but in the same time very exciting to get working on the blog and making some yummy recipes. On my first trip to the supermarket to set me up for the week, the cashier lady said “what nice ingredients you have, what are you making?” – that put a smile on my face!
As November is here and the weather has changed quite a bit I’ve been having lots of soups for lunch. Its a bit more of the healthier option too, so I thought what a great way to start. It’s the season for butternut squash which is such a great vegetable. Adding spices to this soup really works as butternut squash is rather sweet. You can add more heat to it if you like, just add a bit more cayenne, but be careful you don’t want it to blow your head off, this spice is HOT and goes a long way.
Homemade soup is great to have this time of year, it’s got real goodness and keeps you full for longer. Great for cold days and it will last a good 3 days, if not longer. So that’s lunch sorted for the rest of the week!
This soup is very seasonal and would be great for a Christmas starter! You can make it well ahead as it will be great to freeze.
