The Best Soup Ever.....

So Friday is soup day in this house, cheap, easy and looks after itself in the slow cooker. I adore this soup it is adapted from a recipe passed on by a friend.

Autumn Squash Soup.
1 small butternut squash.
1 medium courgette.
1 large carrot.
1 onion.
1 clove of garlic.
3 rashers of streaky bacon smoked or not.
1/2 teaspoon of paprika.
2 veg stock cubes.
a good grind of black pepper.
1 litre boiling water.
1/2 a tub of Philadelphia or one of it's cheap relatives.
Lug of olive oil

Chop it all up fairly small. Fry the onion, garlic and bacon in the olive oil till bacon is cooked and onion is soft, throw into slow cooker, Throw all the other veg in on top, dissolve the stock cubes in the water pour into slow cooker add paprika and pepper. Cook on high for 2 hours. Blend with a stick blender, add the cheese blend again. Eat straight away with crusty bread, this makes quite a runny soup if you prefer a thick one only use 3/4 of a litre of water :)
