South African Butternut Soup

By: Stephan Kloppert from
South African Butternut Soup
South African Butternut Soup

Traditional South African butternut soup is rich and creamy and a feast for eyes and taste buds. Butternut squash is a yellow type of pumpkin which is available nearly all year round and is used extensively in the South African cuisine. This soup is definitely one dish that many South Africans will identify as a meal that is deeply associated with their country. There are many cooking recipes for this dish available in books as well as on the net. My recipe is blending the mellow flavors of the butternut and fresh cream with a variety of exotic spices and the fruitiness of apples and oranges.

This is very much comfort food. I love squash and pumpkin soups. They are light yet filling and they warm you up on a cold day. This particular squash soup has a lot of complex flavors going on. It is so easy. Cook all of the vegetables and throw them in a food processor and blend them smooth. If you don't have a food processor, I imagine an immersion blender would work great. It doesn't mention removing the cinnamon stick, but I think it needs to be.
