Serves 4

  • 1 large onion, halved
  • 4 tbsp dry (fino) sherry
  • 4 lb butternut squash peeled, deseeded and chopped
  • 1 pint hot vegetable stock (we like Marigold)
  • seed bread croûtons and flat leaf parsley
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


  1. Fry the onion in the oil for 5 mins until softened. Add the sherry and squash and sizzle for 1-2 mins. Pour in the stock, then cover and simmer for 20 mins until the squash is tender when pierced with a knife.
  2. Whizz in a food processor until smooth. Will keep in the fridge for 2 days, or freeze for 6 weeks. When ready to eat, reheat until bubbling and serve in small portions topped with seed-bread croûtons (see above right) and a parsley sprig.
