Squash, Potato and Carrot soup

With so much squash in the fridge, I had another to use up, and a great response from my earlier effort I determined to use it for another squash soup. Having already used up the Red peppers I replaced these in the soup with carrots. This would help to keep the colour, as well as provide some flavour. I upped the potato count and dropped the lentils in favour of the onions.

We were set to soup and that’s what we did, flavour was good and the soup itself was thick and delicious
