Sunshine Soup

Butternut squash is not a vegetable I would automatically have thought of as being one you could eat raw, but it is. It can be grated or spiralised, sliced with a mandoline or blended into soup. You do need a high speed blender for this.

Contains: nuts

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Equipment: high-speed blender

Cost per serving (small): 34p
