  • 250ml Oatly Organic Oat
  • 1 butternut squash
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1 minced red chilli
  • 2 sprigs of lemon thyme
  • 2 green apples, diced
  • 800ml vegetable stock
  • 1 lemon
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 Preheat the oven to 240C/475F. Halve the butternut squash and scoop out the seeds using a large spoon.

2 Place the halves on a large baking sheet with flesh side up. Drizzle over the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until the squash is tender.

3 Heat a large pot over medium high heat and add the oil. Add the onions, chilli, ginger and apple and cook until gently soft.

4 Using a large spoon, scoop out the flesh from the butternut squash and add it with thyme to the pot.

5 Pour over the vegetable stock. Bring to the boil and simmer for ten minutes.

6 Remove from the heat and blend using a hand-blender to desired consistency.

7 Add the dairy-free cream alternative and squeeze over the lemon. Leave to simmer for another ten minutes before seasoning with salt and pepper. Serve with toasted pumpkin seeds.
