Method

  1. Preheat oven to 220C. Place the sweet potato and butternut squash pieces on a baking tray. Drizzle honey and olive oil over sweet potato and squash. Roast for 40-45 mins until soft – aim for caramelised edges.
  2. Fry the onions in 1 Tbsp of olive oil until soft. Add garlic, chicken stock, cinnamon and nutmeg. Bring all ingredients to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes.
  3. Remove the sweet potatoes and butternut squash from the oven and add to the pan with the simmering stock. Blend everything until smooth using a stick blender. Next, stir in cream and bring soup back to a gentle simmer.
  4. Season with a pinch of Salt & Pepper and serve.

Soup is best served with crusty toast, a splatter of fresh lemon juice, love and laughter!
