5 reasons why you have to try this creamy butternut squash soup

Yield: 6 bowls

Ingredients

  • - 1 butternut squash
  • - 3-4 cloves of garlic
  • - 250ml of cream (I used the heavy cream)
  • - 250ml of milk
  • - 250ml vegetable stock
  • - Salt and pepper to taste
  • - 1 small branch chopped of rosemary

Instructions

  1. - Peel and clean the squash and cut it into pieces, no shape in particular, it will all go to the blender anyway... Put in a large pot with your garlic, start cooking it like this on medium heat a few minutes.   Then add the milk, the cream and the stock.  Stir it.  Add the rosemary and the salt.
  2. - Let it cook for about 40-45 minutes on a medium heat.   Check that your squash is cooked enough, otherwise put it a few more minutes.
  3. - Then use your blender or hand blender to puree your soup. Aaaand ready!
