Vitamin A Soup – well, actually, it’s Butternut Squash, Carrot and Sweet Potato soup – but these three are loaded with Vitamin A and Beta-carotene as well as many other vitamins and minerals.

I love soup – even though it’s summer here in Australia at the moment, I still eat it regularly.  Soup is really filling as a meal on its own and easy to make in advance.  This is something I make in the largest pot I have and separate out into lots of individual portions, before freezing.  I make lots of different soups, but this one is my favourite as it’s sweet and has a great texture. Ever made a sweet potato soup before?

Equipment

  • Large Pot
  • Blender
  • Storage Containers

Ingredients

  • 1 Butternut Squash
  • 6 Carrots
  • 1 Small Sweet Potato
  • 2 Small Onions
  • Chicken Stock
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • Nutmeg
  • Corriander
  • Salt & Pepper

Instructions

  • Prepare the Onions:Slice the onions and sauté them in coconut oil in a large pot. This forms the base of your soup, providing a rich and savory flavor.
  • Add the Stock:Once the onions are ready, add the chicken stock. I usually make my chicken stock in advance and freeze it. Make sure it's defrosted before adding it to the pot.
  • Chop the Vegetables:Roughly chop the butternut squash, carrots, and sweet potato into chunks. Add these to the pot with the onions and stock.
  • Simmer the Soup:Turn the heat down to a simmer and let the vegetables cook for about 30 minutes. This allows all the flavors to meld together perfectly. Add salt, pepper, nutmeg, and coriander towards the end of the cooking time.
  • Blend the Soup:Transfer everything to a blender in several batches once the vegetables are cooked. Blend until you achieve a smooth and creamy consistency. If you prefer a chunkier soup, blend less.
  • Portion and Freeze:Separate the soup into individual portions after blending, then freeze them. This makes it easy to have a healthy meal ready whenever you need it.

    I'm the same eating soup in summer- in fact I pretty much eat it year round! The Melbourne weather kind of permits it I guess! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    I eat soup year round. I haven't tried freezing ready to eat soup. I must do that to have some on hand if I need nourishment at short notice. Soon there will be lots of pumpkins available here at give away prices. I cut one into chunks and roast it. Then I freeze individual pieces ready for soup. Almost free lunch. Take care

    Hey – you've mentioned several times a great butcher nearby where you can get organic bacon. Would you be able to give out the name please?

    regards

      Hi Steve! Sure, the butcher I use in Sydney is called Naturally Organic Meat and Poultry and is in Neutral Bay. Unfortunatley I've not been able to find a web link, but I'll update when I do.

    I have the same request as Ashley above. How much stock do we use in this recipe? It's the only thing without a real measurement.

      Hi Charissa, I used about 2 litres as I made a huge batch, but stock can vary so much in strength and flavour, so adjust as necessary.
