Butternut Squash & Sweet Potato Soup

A perfect winter warmer this golden soup is a treat for the taste buds and a great alternative to your classic vegetable.

The most eaten squash in the UK, the butternut provides a hearty and subtle flavour and is considered a cold weather superfood due to its abundant source of vitamins, including Vitamin C and Vitamin E. 

We have added the super tasty root vegetable the sweet potato to add a balance and sweetness to the soup. These tuberous roots contain fibre and antioxidants that promote the growth of good gut bacteria and contribute to a healthy gut.
