Butternut Squash And Sweet Potato Soup

Written by McDonald, T.  |  Date 6th of January 2022

This is a great soup for a cold winter's day.  It is made mainly with butternut squash and sweet potato. It is freezable and will keep for 2 -3 days in the fridge.


  • If the soup seems too thick, use vegan milk to thin it out to the desired viscosity. 
  • You can use a hand blender, but it might be a little messy and splatter over the top of the saucepan.

Serves - 1

  • Sweet potato x 200g
