Butternut Squash soup

This beautiful soup is loaded with Vitamin A and Vitamin C. Perfect for bone health, immune support, and to reduce fatigue. You can often find frozen packs of butternut squash in the supermarkets if you prefer, but it’s worth the effort to roast it first for a lovely intense flavour


  • about 120g Diced Butternut Squash ( either fresh or frozen )
  • about 2 inches diced carrot
  • about 1/4 red onion
  • about 1/4 red pepper
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger or ginger purée
  • ½ vegetable stockpot or stock cube
  • 200 ml hot water (you can use 200ml of your own stock)
  • half a chopped red chilli
  • Dollop of cream or crème fraiche
  • Croutons and toasted pumpkin seeds ( optional )


  1. The convenience of Justme is that you use small quantities of veg to make just one bowl of soup. So, if you have a little leftover squash this is ideal or if you have too much you can freeze the leftover squash chunks. Alternatively, you can buy ready prepared frozen squash chunks. For best results and the nicest flavour, it is a good idea to roast the squash first. You don’t have to do this. You can just cook in the soup maker without going to the effort, but the oven really intensifies the flavour
  2. Peel and chop the squash, chop the onion, pepper , carrot, and tomato. Add all the ingredients to the baking tray with a clove of garlic.
  3. Drizzle in oil and season well. Roast for 30 mins on 180°
