  • Time icon Ready in 50 minutes

Smooth butternut squash soup is a delicious winter warmer and is suitable for vegetarians too. The tomatoes add a layer of tang and creaminess.


  • 50g butter
  • 2 large onions, roughly chopped
  • 2 celery sticks, roughly chopped
  • 2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes with herbs
  • 500g butternut squash, deseeded and diced
  • 300ml fresh vegetable stock, hot
  • 142ml whipping cream


  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Cook the onions and celery for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften. Stir in the tomatoes, squash and stock and bring to the boil. Turn down the heat and simmer for 30-35 minutes, until the squash is really tender. Cool.
  2. Either blitz in the pan with a stick blender or whizz in batches in a food processor or blender, until smooth. Gently reheat, stirring in the cream, until just simmering. Remove from the heat and season to taste.
