I LOVE this versatile ingredient, can be used in risottos, ravioli, salads and tasty purees. This week’s recipe however for spiced butternut squash soup is just right for the January chill and brings you the best of hearty winter warming combined with an Asian twist.
Spiced butternut squash soup with ginger and smoked pancetta, now that’s a mouth-full! Not only to say but also in taste. The flavor is warm, fresh and lemony! The smoked pancetta adds a divine smokey salted flavor to accentuate the butternut squash alongside the ginger and lemongrass to create an almost umami like taste.
This recipe is perfect to make on a cool week night as it only takes 40 minutes to prepare and cook. It is also a simple enough recipe that you can easily make this with the family. Serve with some freshly home made bread or buy a loaf of ciabatta from your favorite grocery store. Make sure to make enough as the left-overs can be frozen for an easy to heat up meal on days when you’re not in the mood to cook, but rather want to just get into bed and snuggle with some warm soup.
Now that dinner is sorted, why not take a look at some inspiration for tomorrows meal? See our other recipes, here.
