Manon’s Cuisine

Autumn is well under way and with halloween just around the corner, Manon’s Thai soup recipe will be sure to warm up those cold nights.
















Serves 6


  • ½ butternut squash
  • Salt + pepper
  • ½  lime
  • 2 tbs of thai red curry paste
  • 1 large red onion
  • ?4 cloves of garlic
  • large thumb sized piece of ginger
  • 1x 400g can of coconut milk
  • Olive oil
  • 1 tsp of ground cumin
  • 500ml of veggie stock
  • ?To serve – chives, bread, sunflower seeds and spring onions


  • Start by cutting your butternut squash into cubes, only using the long end of the vegetable and no need to peel either.
  • Roughly chop up your red onion and garlic, peel and slice the ginger. Then in a deep pot, with a little olive oil on medium heat fry the onion, ginger, cumin and garlic for a 2-3 minutes before adding in the Thai red curry paste and make sure to season with salt and pepper.
  • Once you’ve added the paste fry for another minute and add the chopped up squash. Fry for 5 minutes before adding in the vegetable stock. Bring to a simmer and cover the pot with a lid and cook for 30 minutes or until the squash is cooked.
  • ?Add in the lime, and pulse with a hand held blender. Blend until smooth and then add the coconut milk and blend again, taste and season.
  • Divide into bowls, sprinkle over the toppings. Toast some bread and enjoy!
