    The carrot, with its distinctive bright orange colour, is one of the most versatile root…

    Coconut milk is not the slightly opaque liquid that flows from a freshly opened coconut –…

  • 2 reduced-fat naan bread
  • 2 tsp garlic-flavoured oil
  • 2 tsp poppy seed


  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Toss the veg with 2 tbsp curry paste and the coriander stalks, then season. Divide between 2 trays lined with baking parchment and roast for 20 mins. Turn the veg, then swap the trays around in the oven and cook for a further 15 mins.

  2. Heat the rest of the curry paste with a splash of water, add the onion and cook until soft. Add the roasted veg and stock, and simmer until the veg is tender. Add the coriander leaves and blitz with a hand blender. Return to the heat, add the coconut milk and warm through.

  3. Brush the naan breads with garlic oil, sprinkle with seeds and bake for 3 mins. Serve alongside the soup.

Gorgeous - a perfect cold day lunch. Mine made enough for 8 - I filled 3 saved 600ml containers and froze them (containers that you buy soup for 2 in) and we had 2 portions straight away, although my only extra liquid was from using the whole tine of coconut milk. I couldn't think what I would do with the other half!

This was absolutely gorgeous and converted my butternut squash hating cousin. I don't bother to peel the butternut squash, the skin goes soft in cooking and that's where a lot of the goodness is :)

I agree with moosepig. I make a lot of soups and this one is up there with the best of them. A beautiful spicy warm flavour. I didn't have any carrots so used parsnips instead. A definite keeper.

I am assuming the BNS is weighed after peeling?

Just made this soup. I would say it's the best soup I have ever made. Real winter warmer. Makes far more than 4 portions but that's not a problem as its freezeable. I missed out the coriander because I didn't have any but I don't think it really needs it as the flavours are there from the paste.

Does the calorie count include the bread? And what is a serving size as I'm confused by the inclusion of the bread. Thanks

Thanks for your question. Yes, it includes the naan in this recipe, although as there are two for four people, that's half per person. When a recipe does not include an item in the nutritional figures it is listed as 'to serve'.

Is the BNS weight AFTER peeling?

Hi there. The recipe weight normally refers to the vegetable before peeling.

I dont normally bother to peel squash, especially not for soup but the peel won't make much difference weight wise. If you do peel it, weigh it after peeling.
