Butternut Squash Soup
It feels like it's been ages since I last shared a recipe with you. It also seems like ages since I last was able to properly cook in my kitchen! I had a clogged up kitchen drain for around three weeks, and in this time I only used my kitchen for making tea, cold meals and snacks. I more or less lived on take away and backery food, which made me realize once again how nice it is to have a kitchen for preparing nurturing and delicious warm meals.
Yesterday the drain was finally fixed, and I was excited like a kid to finally be able to make something yummy that I was wanting to make for ages: pumpkin soup.
I'd already made a hokkaido pumpkin soup a few weeks ago (which I might also still share with you), but when I found a butternut sqaush in the grocery shop the other day, I had to buy it! I wasn't sure if I would be able to create a pumpkin soup as delicious as the last one, but it luckily turned out great! I hope you will also use the abundance of pumpkins to make yourself a soothing, wholesome soup in the next weeks!
