This is James's soup, one of the soups made by pupils for the Spaldwick Community Primary School Soup Competition.


Making and cooking it
  1. Peel and deseed the squash (you could keep the seeds for next year's crop) and cut into 2cm cubes
  2. Dice the onion finely
  3. Put these two onto a large baking tray and toss in oil and the chilli flakes
  4. Bake in an oven and set at 180°C/350°f/Gas Mark 4 for about 30 min until soft. You will need to look at it after 15 minutes and move the pieces around
  5. Make up the stock in a large jug or bowl
  6. When the onion and squash is cooked add it to the stock.
  7. Using either a stick blender or liquadiser blitz the soup until it is smooth
  8. Taste the soup and add salt or pepper as you wish. If it is too thick add a little more water
  9. Serve
