Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Goat Cheese


• 3 butternut squash

• 5 large banana shallots

• 1 head of fennel

• 4 cloves of garlic

• 5 sprigs of thyme

• 1 tbsp coriander seeds

• 1 tbsp fennel seeds

• 2 tbsp olive oil

• 300ml white wine

• 2L vegetable stock

• Salt and pepper


Chopping board

• Knife

• Roasting tray

• 2 saucepans

• Food processor

• Sieve

• Serving bowl


Preheat your oven to 200°C. Cut your butternut squash into 2cm cubes and spread out on your roasting tray with the thyme and garlic, then season with salt and pepper. Place the roasting tray into the oven, stirring the mixture every 10 minutes, until coloured and soft.

Meanwhile, roughly chop your shallots and fennel. Put them into a large saucepan with olive oil, stir them constantly until sweated and soft. Next, add your fennel and coriander seeds into the saucepan and leave for 1 minute. Add your white wine to de-glaze the saucepan and leave on a medium heat for 3 minutes.

Next add your vegetable stock and bring the mixture to the boil. Once cooked, remove your baking tray from the oven and place the butternut squash cubes, thyme and garlic into the saucepan. Allow your soup mixture to simmer for 40 minutes and then remove from the heat.

Blend your butternut squash soup in a food processor until smooth. If you wish, you can use a fine sieve to pass the soup through to achieve an extra smooth texture. Taste your soup and add salt and pepper to your desired taste.

To serve, spoon a good helping of soup into a bowl and then crumble your goat’s cheese over the top.

Tip: You could also add balsamic glaze and toasted nuts over the top for something different!
