As much as I like Summer and the warm, balmy evenings… HA I live in Wales who am I kidding? I really embrace Autumn. I’m all for snuggly jumpers, fleecy throws, steamed puddings and SOUP.
I picked up a red onion squash at my local market and I was intrigued as I had never seen one before. I wasn’t sure what to make with it so I ended up splitting it into two and using one half to make this incredibly tasty autumnal soup.
I used my Kenwood kCook to create this dish from start to finish to dice, soften and simmer my soup. I’ve had this Multicooker for a few months now ands it’s a really useful piece of kitchen gadgetry! It saves time from chopping vegetables and from changing from pan to pan etc etc. Perfect for anyone who loves homemade food but struggles with finding the time.
You will need:
1/2 a medium squash
2 sweet potatoes
400ml of vegetable stock
300ml of coconut milk
1/2 tsp of oil
1 small red chilli finely diced
Pinch of sea salt ( I used smoked salt from Flavour Magic )
Pinch of black pepper
Peel your vegetables and cut into quarters before placing in your kCook machine with your oil ( if you don’t have one you can dice your veg yourself) and press stir for 1 minute until finely diced. Now cook on the soup/sauce option ( or in a pan ) for 10 minutes to soften.
Add your vegetable stock, coconut milk and seasoning and cook for a further 20 – 30 minutes. At the end of cooking stir/puree for 2 minutes until smooth and serve immediately.
Doesn’t just looking at it make you think of conker fights and walking through crunchy leaves? Autumn in a bowl.
Keep your eyes peeled to find out what I did with the rest of the squash!
