Giving it a go

It would be a bit rubbish if I had married a veggie and instantly converted myself. That is just not the kind of person I am. However, living with a veggie has meant I have had to adapt and has opened my eyes to a whole world of wonderful food I had never experienced before. I love cooking and eating and sharing this with the person I share my life with is therefore obviously important to me, so this has meant when I cook for us both at home, I cook veggie. I am not dead set on becoming a vegetarian right now and am not sure if I will in the future but I have been so inspired by the many vegetarian/vegan blogs out there that I was itching to start my own. So here we go.

Sweet potato and butternut squash soup

This is one of my mums favourites and a version of something I once saw on Saturday Morning Kitchen :)

- Peel, scoop out the seeds and dice 1 butternut squash
- Peel and dice 3 sweet potatoes
- Peel and slice 1 white onion and crush 8 cloves garlic- Fry all the above in 2 tbsp good olive oil and 1 tbsp butter for aboout 15mins
- Add 1 veggie stock cube to the pot and pour boiling water from the kettle in until all the veg is covered
- Add salt and black pepper the soup and bring to the boil
- Simmer for 20 mins or until squash is soft
- Turn off heat, use a masher to mash some of the chunks but not all, taste for seasoning and enjoy
