  • 1 brown onion roughly diced
  • 1.3 lbs butternut squash/pumpkin peeled and diced into cubes. 21 oz (note 1)
  • 7 oz white potatoes like Yukon golds or russet potatoes , peeled and diced (note 2)
  • 10 oz sweet potato peeled and diced (note 3)
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken stock


  • Place onion, pumpkin, potato, sweet potato and chicken stock in a large dutch oven.
  • Bring to boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer 20-30 minutes, or until vegetables are soft.

Option 1 aka easy option

  • Using an immersion blender/stick blender, blend soup until smooth and creamy.

Option 2 aka slightly longer but still easy process

  • Pour small amounts of soup through a sieve into a separate saucepan.
  • Place larger chunks leftover in the sieve into a food processor.
  • In small batches, blend until smooth, then return to liquid already strained into the second saucepan.


  • Reheat until warmed through, about 5 minutes.
  • Serve with a drizzle of cream, crack of salt and pepper and some chopped parsley.
  • Serve with crusty bread and butter.


note 1 - 1lb 5 oz was half a rather large butternut squash. My Australian friends, feel free to use butternut pumpkin, kent or jap pumpkin.
note 2 - this amount was 4 small potatoes.
note 3 - this was one medium-sized sweet potato
General notes on dicing - this doesn't have to be perfect. The smaller you go, the cooker it will cook. I tend to do medium sized chunks because the reality is, I'm too lazy to be finicky about chopping it into smaller pieces!
