1 can coconut milk
500ml vegetable stock
1 tsp black pepper
1. In a large saucepan, melt the butter and add the squash, potato, onion, ginger and chilli. Cook for a few mins to sweat the vegetables down. Add the coconut milk and stock and bring to the boil.
2. Cook for 20-25 mins, until the squash and potato start to break down.
3. Allow to cool, then transfer to a food processor and liquidise. Return to the pan and season with pepper.
