Easy Butternut Soup Recipe

This soup is a hit all around. You can use pumpkins or swap them out for butternut squash for a milder flavour. I love this soup for myself and my family and for serving guests. Plus it makes a great nutritious meal for older babies and toddlers (9 months and older.)

The recipe is inspired by Karen Kaz Lucas, and the soup features on her blog Kathy’s Kitchen. Enjoy!

Butternut squash soup

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons butter (or ghee)

I medium carrot diced

1 medium onion diced

1 turnip diced (optional)

1 tsp crushed garlic cloves

1.5 kgs cubed butternut squash

5 cups broth or stock (veggie or bone broth)

1 cup milk or cream (optional)
