    Yummy soup. Fennel and radishes add a contrasting flavour to the pumpkin, carrots and sweet potato.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 2 carrots, peeled, trimmed and sliced
    • 1 sweet potato, peeled and diced
    • 1 butternut pumpkin, peeled seeded and diced
    • 6 shallots, peeled and finely sliced
    • 1 fennel bulb, trimmed and chopped
    • 1 vegetable stock cube
    • 1 garlic clove, peeled and chopped.
    • 4 tbsp chopped parsley.
    • 1 small bunch of radishes, trimmed and chopped
    • 5 tbsp pumpkin seeds (or to taste...and optional)

    Directions
    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Bring a large pot half-filled with water to the boil. Add the squash, sweet potato, carrots, shallots, fennel and stock cube and bring to boil.
    2. Lower the heat and simmer for 10-12 minutes.
    3. Remove from heat and add garlic.
    4. Allow to cool, then strain the vegetables into a bowl to keep the stock.
    5. Blend half of this stock to the vegetables, either in a food processor of hand blender to your desired consistency. Save the rest (it'll come in useful)
    6. If using a food processor, gently reheat the soup after blending.

    A real winner! We loved this soup, and not only is it delicious, it's super healthy too. I wouldn't change much, but you can play with it a little to suit your tastes. But don't play around with the recipe TOO much, because it truly is fantastic!!!  -  03 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)

    I just made this exactly as directed (except i wasn't brave enough to use a WHOLE fennel) and it's truely delish! I'm trying out different root vegetables as a substitute for potatoes at the moment - as directed by my dietitian, and this recipe is definately at the top of my list! I've kept some portions in the fridge and i may try adding nutmeg when i reheat it as erimousch suggested  -  17 Mar 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)

    This is packed with veg and turned out to be really delicious - perfect for this winter weather! I also added nutmeg (just like erimousch suggested). I loved the flavour the fennel added.  -  03 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
