Roasted Squash and Bacon Soup




Time to dig out the winter warmers as we are set for a chilly weekend around here.
Check out this delicious soup, set to warm the cockles of even the most non Paleo eater.

Serves 4

Ingredients
1/2 medium squash
75g smoked bacon lardons
1 stalk of celery
1 onion
4 tbsp of olive oil
1 ltr of chicken stock (homemade or otherwise)
Salt and Pepper

Chop squash into bite size pieces and place in a roasting dish with the chopped onion, celery, 3 bsp oil and seasoning.
Roast at 180C until soft (approx 30 minutes)
In the meantime, saute the bacon in the remaining oil until cooked through and browned slightly.
Once roasted vegetables are complete place in saucepan with bacon, add stock and bring to the boil.
Blitz using a handheld blender, check for seasoning and serve.

  2. I feel the same way as Rebel Blossom. Squash is one of my favourite foods. Funnily enough - so is bacon. I'm going to make this on the weekend.
