Dinner, Savoury Recipes

Butternut squash & sweet potato soup

Autumn is here! That means loads of pumpkin, squash, sweet potato recipes. I wanted to make a pumpkin pie, that’ll most likely be made later this week, so instead I’ll share this thick soup recipe with you. It’s very easy to make and also very fun, and a perfect warming meal after coming in from the cold, having survived the bustling London streets and the strong winds. The weather has taken a sharp turn again, after an uncharacteristic mild October, and a pretty warm September. Winter is almost upon us.


For this soup, you will need:

  • 1 medium to large butternut squash
  • 3 sweet potatoes
  • 1.5 litres water
  • A dash of salt
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • A handful of rosemary and cloves
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup


  • Peel and dice the squash and potatoes in 1.5 litres of boiling water. Add the rosemary, clothes and salt to the water. Boil in a saucepan until the vegetables are soft, then take off the stove.
  • With a hand mixer, blend the ingredients in the saucepan until smooth. Add the salt, white pepper and maple syrup.
  • Serve and enjoy!
