This soup is delicious, speedy to make, really simple and seasonal too! Serves 6

  • Ingredients
  • 50g coconut oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped

  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 600g squash, such as butternut or pumpkin, peeled and cut into chunks

Heat the oil in a large saucepan and fry the onion gently for 10 minutes, until softened. Add the coriander and fry for another minute. Add the sweet potato, squash and stock.
