Squash, ginger and coconut soup

The ginger and coconut in this soup add a delicious, creamy flavour. The combination works really well with the natural sweet, almost nutty flavour we get from the slow roasted squash.

Ingredients
  

  • 1/4 squash Crown Prince squash is our favourite
  • 2 medium onions
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 clove garlic roughly chopped
  • 3 cm fresh ginger grated
  • 50g creamed coconut
  • 300 vegatable stock

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 170c/375F/gas mark 5. Peel and slice the onion into quarters and cut the squash into segments, and place on a shallow baking tray
  • Roast for 30 minuites or until soft and starting to colour
  • Heat 2 tbsp of vegetable oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the garlic and ginger, frying gently for 2 minuites
  • Add the creamed coconut to the pan, and allow to melt. Add the onions and squash and season to taste.
  • Use a stick blender to blend or transfer in batches to a standard blender
  • Serve hot with fresh coriander (optional) and a crusty bread

Notes

We try to roast the squash and onions when we are cooking something else to save energy, and then save the cooled mixture in a sealed container in the fridge, ready to make a delicious fresh soup the following day. 
You can use any squash for this soup, but sweeter, nutty varieties like 'crown prince' work best.
