Vitamin A Soup Recipe

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.  I find it 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.

Vitamin A Soup Recipe
Recipe type: Soups
  • 1 Butternut Squash
  • 6 Carrots
  • 1 Small Sweet Potato
  • 2 Small Onions
  • Chicken Stock
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • Nutmeg
  • Corriander
  • Salt & Pepper
  1. I slice the onion and sauté it in the coconut oil in a large pot. Once it’s ready I add the chicken stock (this is something I make up in advance and take out of the freezer to defrost).
  2. I roughly cut all the vegetables into chunks before adding them to the pot. I then turn the heat down to a simmer and allow the vegetables to cook for 30 minutes or so, adding the seasoning. I add the nutmeg and coriander at the end and turn off the heat.
  3. I don’t drain the pot, but instead transfer it all into my blender (in several batches) and blend it until it reaches a nice constituency. Once it’s all blended I separate it into individual portions and freeze.

    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 Suz – 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?

      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.
