    Try taking out the parsnips, they have a strong flavour. I'm with jen3, onions and chicken stock are a must!

    I use:
    bns,
    carrot,
    sweetpotato,
    onion,
    stock (chicken or veg).
    I make up a "pot" of spices. 1 teaspoon of each of the following:
    ginger,
    garlic,
    cumin,
    coriander,
    paprika,
    black pepper/white pepper (whatever is around),
    cayenne pepper,
    cinammon.
    Mix all the spices together & use as desired. 1 tsp of the mixed spices makes quite a strong tasting spicy soup. Its lovely.

    I sometimes add a drizzle of creme fraiche as well if I feel like a "luxurious" soup.

    Have got my butternut squash roasting in the oven now. Did not write the recipe down so may improvise a little.
    Did notice that she holds the food to her mouth but nothing goes in. That may be where I am going wrong.......lol

    No, unfortunatly! Just a coincidence that I watched it on replay and saw the thread afterwards. Nice to watch, I sure loads can be adapted to SW recipes. Not sure how I can adapt the peppermint cremes to make them syn free though!:sigh:

    Here is the actual recipe, if you replace butter and oil with
    Fry Light and syn the coconut milk, should be relatively low in syns.
    I personally am going to try it without the coconut milk.

    Lorraine Pascales Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Chilli and Ginger.

    One butternut squash
    One clove garlic
    One onion
    Splash olive oil
    Knob of butter
    One regular chilli
    1cm chunk fresh ginger
    900ml chicken stock
    Half a lime
    One tablespoon tinned coconut milk
    One sprig coriander
    Salt and pepper to taste
    1. To start Lorraine chops her butternut squash in half long ways and removes the seeds. She slashes criss-crosses into the flesh of both halves, drizzles with olive oil and seasons with salt and pepper.
    2. Lorraine places an unpeeled clove of garlic into the hollow of one of the squash halves and roasts everyting in an oven at 190 degrees C for around 30 minutes.
    3. While the butternut squash and garlic is roasting, Lorraine finely chops her onion and adds to a hot pan of olive oil and butter, where she lightly fries them for 10-15 minutes until soft but not brown.
    4. After 30 minutes, Lorraine takes the squash out of the oven and scoops the flesh out of the skin, and places it into the pan with the onions.
    5. Lorraine finely chops and de-seeds a regular chilli and adds about half to the pan along with the fresh ginger which she greats finely.
    6. Before mixing together Lorraine adds 900ml of chicken stock (vegetable stock would be fine, and you can use your preferred brand of either).
    7. After a final stir, Lorraine pours the contents of the pan into her food blender, where she whizzes up into a fine and rich texture.
    8. Before serving Lorraine adds a few twists of fresh black pepper, a pinch of salt and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.

    Here's another..................


    Pete’s Butternut Squash Curry Soup





    Serves 4

    Ingredients

    425g/half a Butternut Squash, cut into 30mm cubes (leave the skin on) remove seeds.
    750g chicken stock
    1 tbsp. madras curry powder
    1 onion, finely chopped
    1 carrot, finely chopped
    1 celery stick, finely chopped

    Method

    Spray a frying pan with Fry Light, cook the onion until soft, add curry powder, add the cut butternut squash, along with the carrot & celery bring to the boil and then simmer for 30-40 mins until everything is soft. Season with salt & pepper.
    Remove from the heat and blitz with a hand blender.

    When buying butternut squash check that it sounds hollow when tapped, is a good orange colour with no bruises or green tinge.

    They store well in a cool room wrapped in a dark paper bag, NOT in a plastic bag as it will rot!
