You will need:
- 1 butternut squash - peeled, deseeded and cubed
- 2 sweet potatoes – peeled and cubed
- 2 leeks – washed, and sliced
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 clove garlic – crushed
- 24.5fl oz (700ml) vegetable stock
- Oatly cream if desired
In a large saucepan, add the butternut squash, sweet potato, leek and olive oil and fry over a gentle heat for around 8-10 minutes until softened, stirring frequently so it doesn't stick to the bottom of the saucepan.
Add the garlic, and stir well.
Pour over the vegetable stock, stir to combine, place a lid on the saucepan and leave to simmer for around 15-20 minutes.
Remove from the heat, blend until smooth and serve with a drizzle of Oatly cream and some crusty bread.*
