Anything from butternut squash, pumpkin and anything in-between can be used to make this lovely warming soup. Add a little honey over the roasting veg as a treat. Or a sprinkle of paprika for warmth.
Top tip - use frozen squash when out of season, or cut a fresh butternut squash in half, brush lightly with oil, and bake flesh side down - this is much easier than peeling and chopping!
If you’ve used pumpkin you can also roast the seeds- toss in a little oil and sprinkle with cinnamon, then roast at 140 for 30 mins. Yummy as they are or with a drizzle of honey.

1. Place all the chopped veggies in an ovenproof dish.
