Gather the ingredients for this fall vegetable soup

Most of this soup's ingredients are found in your local grocery store's produce section –– just grab olive oil, yellow onion, carrots, 1 leek, butternut squash, potatoes, vegetable stock, and salt and pepper to taste.

Once you have those things, you can whip up a batch of this fall vegetable soup.

Cook the vegetables, and simmer the soup

First, dice the onion, carrots, and leek. Peel, and dice the butternut squash and potato. 

Then, toss the onion, carrots, leak, and olive oil into a large pot over medium heat. Cook for about 10 minutes, or until all the vegetables have softened.

After that, add the potatoes, butternut squash, and vegetable stock to the same pot. Bring the mixture to a boil over high heat, cover, and reduce to a simmer. Let the ingredients cook at a simmer for at least 25 minutes.

Blend the soup

When the vegetables have cooked, carefully transfer the soup from the pot into a blender, and blitz until smooth for about 1 minute. Remove the soup from the blender, place it back into the pot, and add a little bit of salt and pepper to taste. "The taste is a rich, savory flavor, with some natural sweetness from the squash and carrot," Brookes shares.

Serve and enjoy

Ladle the soup into bowls or cups, and serve any way you'd like. Brookes suggests serving this fall vegetable soup with fresh bread, "Or you could mix a little rice or grated cheese through the soup." "Leftovers will keep well in the fridge [for] up to 3 days," she shares. 

We hope this soup satisfies your cravings !
