Flavour up butternut squash with Indian spices for this warming and healthy vegetarian soup
1 tbsp olive oil
1 butternut squash, peeled, deseeded and diced
200g carrot, diced
1 tbsp curry powder containing turmeric
100g red lentil
700ml low-sodium vegetable stock
1 can reduced-fat coconut milk
coriander and naan bread, to serve
Heat the oil in a large saucepan, add the squash and carrots, sizzle for 1 min, then stir in the curry powder and cook for 1 min more. Tip in the lentils, the vegetable stock and coconut milk and give everything a good stir. Bring to the boil, then turn the heat down and simmer for 15-18 mins until everything is tender.
Using a hand blender or in a food processor, blitz until as smooth as you like. Season and serve scattered with roughly chopped coriander and some naan bread alongside.
