We recently had an afternoon of research in a bid to make Google love us even more and we spent time checking out what people were searching for online when it comes to recipes. Turns out soup is right up there at the top of the recipe tree!
I have to say, I wasn't surprised. We do love proper, homemade soup us Scots; you can never underestimate what a good bowl of soup can do for your soul. The love we feel for this simplest of dishes may stem from pots of hearty ham & lentil or a braw Scotch Broth, but in recent years we've opened up to the idea of 'fancy' or 'posh' soup (I have heard Broccoli and Stilton called both!). Of course, most of these newer recipes are actually very simple with only two or three ingredients required and twenty minutes on the hob to cook. If truth to be told, there's nothing that swish about them at all!
This butternut squash and orange is a perfectl example. It sounds grand but is actually super easy to make and amazingly tasty to eat. I love that velvety, smooth finish of butternut squash in soup and the hint of orange and chilli just lifts it to another level. Amazing!
