This Creamy Thai Butternut Squash Soup is rich and nourishing, yet packs a punch of fragrant Thai flavours.
I need to be upfront about this, this soup started off life as a disaster.
I’d planned to make a Thai curry using the first of our homegrown butternut squash but when I served it up, I was less than impressed. It kind of tasted like a spicy, lumpy porridge that was thick and gloopy and wholly unappetising.
Rather than throw out this gigantic pan of gorgeous ingredients that had the misfortune to meet my creative side on a bad day, I chucked it all in the blender and added hot water from the kettle to make a soup.
And so I dedicate this recipe to my blender, that kitchen gadget that can transform a culinary cock up into a recipe worthy of having its praises sung and getting its picture on Instagram. #thanksblender
