I'm doing a rare public post because - inspired by [livejournal.com profile] noting_nothing - I really want to share this recipe for Creamy Red Pepper and Butternut Squash Soup - I love making soups, in fact I find soup making to be one of the few consolations of dark winter days where the light is fading by 2pm. So... as Borat would say "is naice!"

Serves 4

Butter, 25g
Onion, 1 large, chopped
Butternut Squash, 1 medium, peeled, deseeded and chopped into chunks.
Red pepper, I medium, deseeded and chopped
Vegetable stock cubes, 2 dissolved on 450ml water
Cream cheese, 200g
Milk, 450ml
Chives, 2 tablespoons chopped
Salt and black pepper

1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Add the onion and fry gently for until softened but not browned.
2. Add the butternut squash, red pepper and vegetable stock. heat until the mixture is just simmering, then turn the heat to low and cook gently for about 20 mins, partially covered, until the vegetables are soft and tender.
3. Transfer the mixture to a blender and add about half the cream cheese. Blend together until completely smooth.
4. Return the mixture to the saucepan and add the milk and half the chives. Stir thoroughly and reheat until piping hot. Season the taste.
5. Ladle the soup into bowls then top each portion with a dollop of the reserved cream cheese. Sprinkle with the remaining chives and serve.
