Method

  1. Heat the oil in your largest saucepan. Add the onions, apples and celery with a pinch of salt. Cook for 10 mins, stirring now and then, until softened. Add the butternut squash, curry powder, cinnamon, nigella seeds and a grind of black pepper. Cook for 2 mins more, then stir in the tomatoes and stock. Cover with a lid and simmer for 15 mins.
  2. By now the vegetables should be tender but not mushy. Stir in the rice, pop the lid back on and simmer for another 12 mins until the rice is cooked through. Taste and add more seasoning if needed. Stir through the parsley and mango chutney, then serve in bowls with yogurt and extra mango chutney on top, if you like.

Really easy and quick to make. We also added fresh ginger, garlic and some fresh chilli for a bit of added kick. Very filling and tasty and as its all in one pot even less washing up! We halved the quantity and there is still easily enough for 4 adults

A great low calorie recipe, I've really struggled to find nice, filling 5:2 recipes. This is now up there with my favourites.

I added some grated freshy ginger and a hit of garlic - I imagine it would have been lacking without the extra spice. Very nice though and will definitely be making again - perfect for 5:2 days. I made half the quantity (there are only two of us) and there is loads left over (now in the freezer for a diet day next week).

Love this recipe, its so tasty and so easy to make! I added another stick of celery and some chicken and easily got 8 portions out of it. Worked out at 253 calories per portion with the additions and provided a very filling lunch!

Really enjoyed this recipe. Made it for myself, the husband and the parents and it went down very well. Made it according to the recipe - had a lovely flavour and is very hearty - perfect for a snowy winter night! Recipe says serves six but you could get 8 portions out of this - and I promise, we aren't small portion people in my house!

I'm new to the site and really excited about fasting day recipes for the 5:2 diet. I haven't been able to find how many servings this recipe makes? Is there some information I haven't found yet on serving sizes? I'm very keen to make this recipe and know I'm serving 212 calories per serve. Thank you :)

fantastic recipe, very tasty and smells amazing when its cooking. when I first made it, we had had a curry the night before and I didn't want rice again, so instead of adding the rice, I threw in a can of chickpeas which worked equally as well. have made it several times sine. its is a firm favourite in our house.

Great recipe, lovely substantial soup. Left overs put in the fridge but the rice tended to absorb the liquid, so reheated in the pan with the addition of more stock

Love hotpot stew-like recipes so made this and was really happy with the result. Built on the recipe to include meat - 500g small beef chunks (cooked with the apples and onions) , 2 cloves of garlic, 2 carrots and about 200g canned chickpeas. Didn't use celery. Was a bit cautious with the cinnamon, two-thirds of a tablespoon. Put in about 160g rice (used Thai Jasmine), and reduced the stock to 1 litre for a thicker, stew consistency. Topped it off with fresh spinach leaves and a splash of lime when serving.

Makes a lovely, thick, tasty soup. I didn't add the mango chutney though; I think that would have made it a bit too sweet and sickly.

I also adapted it into a chicken mulligatawny. I simply fried some thinly sliced chicken in a little of the curry powder, and added it in place of the butternut squash. Next time I'll adapt it a bit further by trying some alternative spices.

Quite good but I think I'll put less rice next time (maybe 100g) because with 140g, it ended more like a congee than a soup or even a stew. On the other hand, I'll put more squash (probably 1).

Just had this for dinner on a rainy wet May evening and it was de-lish.Perfect comfort food. Didn't have any cooking apples or mango chutney so made with out it. Followed rest of recipe more or less as above. A squeeze of lemon juice adds a nice finish. Definitely makes more than 6 servings.

This is a great recipe! It turned out very thick, and more like a stew, but is very tasty and pretty easy to make (cutting up squash is always a bore). I cut up the onion, celery and apple really small, but left the squash fairly chunky.

It made enough for ten mug sized portions for lunch at work. I worked out that it cost about £4.50 for me to make the whole batch, including oil.

Really nice and filling soup. I used little pasta shells as ran out of rice worked just as well. One of those soups that's substantial enough to have in the evening.

Delicious! I'll definitely be making this recipe again and again. Half-quantities served 3 of us generously. I had to simmer the soup for 5 minutes longer at the end for the rice to cook properly.

Fabulous and warming , for those who dislike chunky soup it's easily blended too.
