This delicious curried butternut squash soup makes such a comforting meal. I like to serve it topped with chopped walnuts, fresh coriander and a swirl of dairy-free cream or yoghurt.
In this recipe, I have added an apple for extra sweetness and some ginger for extra warmth. I have also included some red lentils which not only give a healthy plant-based protein boost but also make this curried butternut squash soup extra smooth.
Once you have liquidised the soup, you can add some more vegetable stock to get your desired consistency. Don’t forget to season this soup with a splash of lemon juice too!
