As autumn approaches we always have a glut of squashes so this is a good use to put them to.

Type of squash

This time I did not use an actual butternut squash but the (unknown) type pictured here, it was just as good!

Chef's note

I did not have enough 'proper' chicken stock so I cheated and used one and a half Knorr chicken stock cubes in 2 pints of boiling water and I have to say the soup was still exquisite.
