Welcome to my latest recipe and this is my Slimming World Curried Butternut Squash Soup in the soup maker. Loaded with lots of Slimming World speed foods such as butternut squash and carrot along with spices from your kitchen cupboard, this Slimming World recipe is perfect for kick starting your weight loss.
Also welcome to a brand new theme here at RecipeThis.com. We are featuring a range of Slimming World recipes along with us following Slimming World personally to highlight wholesome cooking and getting lots of extra vegetables into our diet.
For those of you that don’t know Slimming World, then in a nutshell it is British diet that focuses on low fat, carbs whenever you want them and never feeling hungry. So in other words you can eat pasta bakes everyday and still lose weight.
But that is not how I always remember Slimming World. As Slimming World to me always meant watching my mum make the most enormous pan of soup you had ever seen. She would do it one of those old fashioned silver pans and it would be cooking all day. She would then tuck into the soup and would have a week that involved a big weight loss.
In many respects it would remind me of the cabbage soup diet and I would giggle and refuse the soup, because it looked rather boring.
But that was in the early 90’s and Slimming World was (like most diets then) really boring. Nobody seemed to have any imagination then and we didn’t have the likes of Facebook Groups or Pinterest to share recipes with each other from around the world.
So the plan is to make Slimming World recipes modern, interesting and full of flavour. And that is exactly what I am kick starting with right now.
This Slimming World Curried Butternut Squash Soup is made with loads of carrots, loads of butternut squash, plenty of spice and quark in order to give it an amazing creamy texture. We then cooked it to perfection in our Morphy Richards Soup Maker.
Then for my first day back at Slimming World I will be having this for breakfast (yes really) and for dinner. Then a normal SP lunch.
So bring it on. Get lost in the moment with some delicious soup and remind yourself what wholesome vegetables can be like.

Place your carrots and butternut squash in the bottom of your soup maker.
Add to it 200ml of tap water.
Add your seasonings and then place the lid on your soup maker.
Cook on the chunky soup setting for 28 minutes.
Once cooked, remove half the liquid, add the quark and blend.
Serve with chilli flakes.
I have also been known to use Greek Yoghurt or Fromage Frais. Just use whatever suits you. Also try your best to keep it Syn free that way you can use your syns for other things.
This portion size served me for 2 big bowls of soup.
I normally add an OXO cube to my soup but it was so delicious without it I decided not to bother.
My curried butternut squash soup came out mild. Add more heat if that is your thing.
