Submitted by zzzzzz 11 June 2009

If you want to impress when you serve, try swirling a little cream with a cocktail stick in the centre of the bowl and scatter with finely chopped flat leaf parsley (this has a better flavour than the curly type) Yum.



4 large carrots,1 butternut squash,1/2 cup orange split peas,1 carton alpro single cream (or use real cream if you want),salt,coarse ground black pepper


Peel carrots and butternut squash. Remove seeds from squash and discard. Chop veg into chunks. Wash the the orange split peas. Put into a fairly large pot cover with water. bring to boil, then reduce heat and allow to simmer for approx 1 hour or until all veg is very soft.

Blend well - I use a Braun hand held blender - nice and pwerful.

Add cream, salt and pepper to taste. If soup is too thick you can add water to dilute a little
