  • 1 Squash butternut or potimarron (red kuri)
  • 1 cup Heavy cream (35%)
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 100 g (3.5 oz) Butter


  • Cut the squash in small dices. Note: most of the time I leave the skin on as it softens during boiling, and adds colour.

  • Cook on medium heat, until the squash is soft.
  • Mix well in a blender until smooth add the butter and enjoy.
