Jenny Sleath's Autumnal Spiced Coconut Squash Soup


  • 1 Large Butternut Squash

  • 3 x small parsnips cubed

  • 3 x medium carrot cubed

  • 1 x red onion roughly cubed

  • 3 cloves of garlic (peeled and whole)

  • Olive oil

  • Salt + pepper

  • 1 x pouch of Borough Broth Co Beef Broth

  • 1 cup coconut milk

  • Juice of 1/2 lemon

  • 1 tsp Garam Masala

  • 1 tbsp tamari

  • 11/2 tsp Ground Cumin

  • Pinch Cinnamon

  • 11/2 tsp chopped red chilli (we use the easy chopped red chilli)

  • 2 tbsp Ground Turmeric

  • 1tsp maple syrup

  • 11/2 tbsp peanut butter

To serve:

  • Coconut yogurt,

  • Chopped hazelnuts

  • Pumpkin seeds


  1. Half your squash and place on a baking tray. Roast in the oven on a medium heat for 60-90 minutes until brown on the outside and soft inside.

  2. Place your parsnips, carrots, red onion and garlic on a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and salt + pepper and roast for 30 minutes until golden and caramelised.

  3. While your veg are roasting, heat your broth + coconut milk with the lemon juice, chilli, maple, syrup + tamari on a low heat with 1/4 cup of water.

  4. Once your veg are done remove from the oven and scoop the flesh from your squash into your blender jug (or into a deep large pan if you don’t have a blender).

  5. Add your roasted roots and all your spices. Add the heated broth mix to your jug or pan along with the peanut butter. Blend on high for 3-4 minutes or until it looks “soup” like. If you don’t have a blender simply use a stick hand blender to pulse all the ingredients in your pan to a soup! Check your consistency and seasoning and add a small amount of hot water a bit at a time if too thick till you reach the thickness you like.

  6. Serve with a swirl of yogurt and some toasted pumpkin seeds + chopped hazelnuts (simple place on a baking tray and toast in the oven on a medium heat for 5 mins). This makes quite a large amount so is fab to make on a Sunday for the week ahead or pop in freezer proof containers for when you need a simple lunch or dinner! Yum!
