This recipe was given to Gustavo by a close friend called Lara and is the best butternut squash soup we have ever tried (and its also very easy!)
4 medium size onions
2 cloves of garlic
1 butternut squash (1.5kgl)
1.5lt water (could need a little more
Your favourite condiments could be oregano, parsley, cayenne pepper, rosemary, or nutmeg
In a large deep pan saute 4 medium sized onions with some olive oil and two cloves of garlic until they are transparent
Add to this one butternut squash cut into squares (about 1.5kg) and cook for a couple of minutes
Add 4 cut up carrots and 3 pealed tomatoes
Add water (enough to cover all the vegetables about 1.5 ltrs) and cover the pan, let the vegetables cook for about 40 minutes.
Once all the vegetables are cooked blend everything together and add any condiments you like such as oregano, parsley, cayenne pepper, or nutmeg, pepper and salt.
If you wish you can also put add two or three tablespoons of cream.
