Sweet Mama Squash and Tomato Soup

During the cold months there is nothing better than a warming lunch of homemade soup.

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!
