The Crown Prince squash has to be one of the most special looking squash available especially in Autumn! It’s ghostly pastel green skin looks so unusual compared to it’s own bolder squash cousins, yes the flesh inside is a rich orange colour that makes soup look so delicious.
I recommend the Crown Prince for this recipe, but others such as butternut squash would work equally well.
The great thing about squash is they last for weeks until you’re ready to cut and use them, and can provide a healthy and wholesome meal without need for many more ingredients at all.
This simple soup only needs six simple ingredients to create an incredibly warming and flavoursome dish; a squash; a red onion; a thumb of ginger; stock, seasoning and olive oil.
The ginger adds such a warming after taste that is perfect to enjoy when you return home in this cold weather!
Once made, this soup can be kept in the fridge for 48 hours and reheated as necessary; great to take out with you in a flask, too. Great served with thick bread slices or crackers on the side.
