Quirky Squash Soup
What can I say, we have loads of squash and masses of apples and so when I saw this recipe I just had to try and the result was well… a surprise to say the least. It has to be said, it is different but this is part of its charm. It also has the advantage of being able to be served hot in the winter ( I added the potato to give it a bit more body) or cold using summer squash for a lighter version. Why not give it a try and let me know what you think.

To make this soup you will need the following:
Add the chopped onion and garlic to the oil and saute until soft
Add the squash and apples
Add the potato if you intend to have the soup hot
Cover with vegetable stock
Simmer for about 15 minutes or until the vegetables are soft
Add the ground cumin, salt and pepper to taste.
Leave to cool if its going to be use cold.
For the hot version you can leave it as it is, or mash down or whizz it with a blender.
