  • 1-2 tsp oil

  • 1 onion, peeled and finely sliced

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan.

  2. Add the onion and celery and fry gently for about 10 minutes or until the onion is transparent and the celery has softened.

  3. Add the carrot and butternut, then cover with the stock (this should just cover the vegetables, add a little more if needed).
