Marie’s Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut Squash Soup is a great go to Zero Hero and of course naturally NC. Here is Marie’s version: very simple, no faff roasting, sieving etc…

Ingredients (serves 3):

  • small/medium butternut squash, peeled, de-seeded and cut into 2cm dice
  • large onion, peeled and cut into wedges
  • a pint of water
  • a tsp Swiss Bouillon (Vegan) or veg stock cube
  • a tsp and a half of ground cumin
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • fresh or frozen coriander to garnish


  1. Put everything into a large pan, bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. Liquidise or stick blend till smooth; garnish with coriander.
You may need more water, it depends on the size of your butternut squash. I do not add salt to my cooking but if you like salt you will need to add. I have made many versions of this soup but this is the easiest, try making it thinner and putting it in a flask to go with your lunch time sandwich.

  1. I made butternut and carrot last weekend and have had it for lunch all week, will add the onion to see if it makes a difference, thank you 🤗

  2. Thank you Helen & Marie.
    I regularly make bns soup, sometimes I add a tsp of either chilli powder or curry powder. It gives it a nice kick.

  3. This is how I have always made mine and its great..sometimes I add in peeled, chopped tomatos 1o mins before the end..lovely flavour…or a handful of chilli flakes..the combos for this are infinite..
