Winter Warmers #1: Butternut Squash, Turnip and Lentil Soup

In the first of the 'Winter Warmers' series is the recipe for Butternut Squash, Turnip and Lentil Soup.

Firstly, I LOVE a good bit of Butternut Squash, I know no bounds in the use of this particular vegetable and in a soup it is near divine; not only is this super-veg packed with Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Calcium but in a soup it helps to create the illusion that you have actually made a soup full of cream.

I choose Turnip as opposed to Suede mainly as it has a slightly milder flavour which I feel compliments that of the Butternut Squash far better.

Ingredients (Serves 4)
150g Lentils
350g Butternut Squash
1 Turnip
1 Onion
2 Carrots
1 Litre Vegetable Stock
1 tbsp Paprika
Salt and Pepper to taste

Method
Boil all ingredients together and reduce down as desired for 15 minutes.  Using an electric hand blender, blend all ingredients together to form a smooth soup.
