Instructions

  2. Cut 1 peeled and deseeded butternut squash into large cubes, about 4cm/1½in across, then toss in a large roasting tin with 1 tbsp of the olive oil. Roast for 30 mins, turning once during cooking, until golden and soft.

  6. Serve the soup in bowls with swirls of Elmlea Double Plant and a scattering of the remaining chopped chilli.
