This week in my organic vegetables box I received a Sweet Mama Squash. Squash is a perfect base for a wholesome soup. I often find that if it is cooked any other way my children won't eat it, but give them a soup with squash in and they will demolish it! Plus soups are a sneaky way of getting some more vegetables in them!
This is what I did...
Sweet Mama Squash and Tomato Soup
400g sweet mama squash, diced
4 shallots, chopped
1 stalk of celery, sliced
1 large red Ramiro pepper, chopped
1 400g tin of chopped tomatoes
1 vegetable stock cube
1 - Place all of the vegetables in either a soup maker or a pan
2 - Pour over the chopped tomatoes
3 - Place the stock cube in the empty tin, fill with boiling water and mix until the stock cube has dissolved then pour into the soup maker or pan
4 - Either start the soup maker on a smooth setting or bring the ingredients to the boil then simmer for approximately 20 minutes or until the vegetables have softened
5 - If cooking in a pan, remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly before blitzing in a blender until smooth
This soup is delicious on its own, or why not add some fresh seeded bread. To make it a little bit creamier add a teaspoon of cream to each bowl before serving.
If you are following the Slimming World plan this is a delicious syn free soup!
