Butternut and Broccoli Soup

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
Fresh cream

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

NOTE: I forgot to mention that the broccoli can be replaced with granny smith apples 2-3 grated apple core removed!
