Butternut and Broccoli Soup for the colder winter months. Super delicious, awesome and oh so yummy all will love it.
1 Medium butternut (remove pips cut into squares with the skin)
1 Medium broccoli (cut into pieces)
1 medium onion (cut into pieces)
1 Cube chicken stock (1/2 liter of boiling water)
A little bit of olive oil to fry the onions
Fry onion pieces in olive oil till light brown.
Add butternut, broccoli, and chicken stock. (chicken stock must cover all the veggies)

Remove from heat.
With a blender mash all the veggies.
Add half a cup (or more) of fresh cream according to taste
Add salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Simmer again for a few minutes until all the ingredients have cooked through.
If the soup is too thick you can add a bit more water.
Serve as a starter or main dish with toasted french loaf
Garnish with a dot of cream and a sprig of parsley (optional)
NOTE: I forgot to mention that the broccoli can be replaced with granny smith apples 2-3 grated apple core removed!
