Triple Herb and Spicy Butternut Squash Soup

Hello lovely individuals, I have shared with you a yummy soup recipe 'triple herb and spicy butternut squash soup'. It is truly marvelous! I hope you like the sound of it rather than the appearance, so give it a go, it's super easy and takes about 1h 30mins.

Firstly i'll give you the ingredients (since that's pretty important)

2 butternut squash 
2 carrots
1 red onion 
2 celery sticks
8 bay leaves
16 sage leaves 
6 rosemary sprigs
2 tsp fennel seeds
1 tbsp mixed nuts
2 vegetable stock cubes
2 garlic cloves
1 red chili pepper 
10 tbsp olive oil 

Beautiful people, what you first want to do is throw in a large sauce pan the bay leaves, Fennel seeds, mixed nuts, sage leaves, and 10 tbsp's of olive oil. Put the hob onto medium heat and allow the oil to infuse with the herbs and spices. Meanwhile roughly chop up the carrots, onion, celery sticks, and rosemary ...

...Once the herbs and spices have infused in the olive oil, carefully take them out, leaving the olive oil remaining in the pan and put in a separate bowl (we need these for later on in the recipe)! Put the chopped veg in the pan, along with finely chopped 1 red chili pepper and 3 garlic cloves, allow them to cook in the olive oil for 10 mins... 

...whilst the veg is cooking for 10 mins, roughly chop the butternut squashes into small chunks. In a smaller sauce pan put 1.7 liters of water as well as the 2 vegetable stock cubes in the pan and allow to simmer...

... once the veg has cooked for 10 mins, add in the butternut squash and stock. Cover the pan and let it simmer for 40 mins. Meanwhile by using a hand blender, blend the herbs and spices (from the start of the recipe) into a paste, add to the large sauce pan... 

... once the 40 mins is up, bring off the hob and by using the hand blender, blend until smooth...

... serve the soup with a sprinkling of Parmesan and fresh ciabatta bread.

Lovelies, I hope you love this soup as much as I do!

I'll talk soon beautiful people.
