    Ummmm, none really at present
    I love BNS soup but I don't put any potatoes in so it's 0 points!!
    A little tip as well....you don't have to peel it, the skin goes very soft when cooked, like paper and is edible. You can't even really tell its still on and it saves wrist ache!!

    You can also halve the squash lengthways, de-seed it, then roast cut-side down until very soft. Once cool you should be able to pull the skin off in one go.

    I usually roast an onion and a head of garlic alongside the squash, then blitz it all together with some stock for a really yummy--and easy--soup.

    I use BNS all the time for soups. I slice it in half, remove the seeds and roast it at 200 for about an hour or until the edges start to get brown and syrup forms on the top. It brings out the natural sweetness. I throw some red peppers and onions in to roast with it and then add them all to a pot with stock, curry powder and serve it with chopped coriander. Delicious! 0 points!
