Instructions
  1. 💫Pre-heat oven to 200C (375F) and line a baking sheet with baking paper. 💫Place kabocha squash - cut side down - on baking sheet and roast until the flesh is cooked - about 45-50 mins.
  2. 💫Remove and leave squash to cool a little, then scoop flesh (not skin - eat the skin as is and enjoy!!)
  3. 💫Heat olive and coco oil in a pot before adding leeks, garlic, oregano, sage and rosemary. Saute until leek becomes soft, then add fennel and cook it also until soft.
  4. 💫Add kabocha flesh, bay leaf, stock/water and salt. Mix to combine well.
  5. 💫Leave to cook for about 25-30 minutes, stirring every so often before removing from heat and adding the coconut cream.
  6. 💫LAST BUT NOT LEAST: puree with an immersion blender to turn into a creamy, dreamy soup. Add fresh lemon juice as a garnish (looks and tastes great👌🏻) and enjoy! x
