Not only is this soup wonderfully creamy and comforting, it comes with an added zing courtesy of the lime and chilli. Perfect for a cold day!

I always multiply up the ingredients to the size of my largest pan. Any soup that I won’t use, I then freeze into individual portion sizes, making lots of ready prepared meals I can just heat up – or take into work.

Paleo Diet Recipe Roasted Pumpkin Butternut Squash Soup Chilli Lime

Soup Ingredients:

  • 1 small pumpkin, deseeded and cut into wedges
  • ½ butternut squash, as above
  • 4 – 5 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 700ml water
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • 1 teaspoon of coriander
  • 1 teaspoon dried chilli flakes
  • Salt and black pepper

 Soup How To:

1)     Heat the oven to 180C / 350F / gas mark 4. Place the wedges of pumpkin and squash into a roasting dish, coat with the olive oil and season with salt and black pepper. Roast for around 45 minutes until really soft and tender (this may take a little longer depending on the size of your veggies) then remove from the oven and leave to cool.

2)     Scrape the flesh away from the wedges into a large pan. Add the water and the spices, and blend well with an immersion blender.

3)     Heat through, then stir in the lime juice. Season to taste and enjoy.
