Serves 2 – 4


  • 1kg Butternut, peeled and diced
  • 2 medium Carrots, roughly chopped
  • 3 Gem squash, halved, seeds removed
  • 2 Tbsp Canola oil
  • 1/2 tsp. Garlic, crushed
  • 2l Water, boiling
  • 3 tsp. Stock, powder, chicken
  • 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. Cumin
  • 2 – 4 Tbsp. Cream, fresh


  • 1 packet Bacon, lean, diced
  • 4 Tbsp. Pumpkin seeds, roasted
  • 1/2 cup Croutons




  1. Heat oil in large pot, add garlic, butternut and carrots and saute. Put lid on and let steam for 5minutes. In a separate pot, boilwater and add gem squash – cook until soft
  2. Mix boiling water and stock and add to vegetables until covered. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer. Simmer covered for 30 minutes, mixing occasionally. Add squash, cinnamon and cumin and mix well. Puree until smooth – I used a hand blender.
  3. Dish up into soup bowls – add tablespoon of cream and finish of with garnish of choice.


  • Something Meaty: bake diced bacon in oven until crispy – add on top of soup
  • Vegetarian: add 1 – 2 Tbsp roasted pumpkin seeds
  • Crispy: add 1 – 2 Tbsp croutons




  1. Works well as leftovers the next day
  2. Perfect consistency for babies – soup can also be frozen in ice cube trays for baby for an easy and quick meal later
