Roasted Veg Soup with Feta & Sage

Hot soup has a bit of an unfair reputation if you ask me.

In Autumn we are all over the stuff. “Oh it’s so warm” “oh it’s so comforting!” we say.

But come Springtime, when things start warming up again, we forget all about it. Moving on to chilled summer soups and salads.

But hold your horses!

Veggie soup is remarkably simple, you can make boatloads at a time (for a feast or to save until later), it’s exceptionally good for you, keeps you fuller for longer, is packed with vitamins and good stuff, and is generally just souper!

So before you go racing off after summer salads, give this beauty a go…

Roasted Veg Soup Recipe-1

But be warned, it’s pretty addictive stuff!

Roasted Veg Soup Recipe-2

Silky smooth soup, topped with crumbled feta and a swirl of cold cream.

Roasted Veg Soup Recipe-3

And it’s easy too! For four bowlfuls (plus a little leftover for seconds), grab:

Half a butternut squash

Five large carrots

4 shallots

Handful of fresh sage

Salt + pepper

Olive oil

2ltrs Vegetable stock

Feta to serve

Cream to serve

Pre-heat your oven to 180c/350f and crack on with your veg.

Roasted Veg Soup Recipe-4

Half a squash, wrap up one half and pop it away again.

Scoop out the seeds, peel the skin and discard. Chop the flesh into chunks. And do the same to your carrots.

Roasted Veg Soup Recipe-5

Peel and chop your shallots into similarly sized chunks.

Drizzle with a little olive oil, sprinkle with salt and a good grind of pepper. Add a few sage leaves and toss the whole lot around, until the veg lightly shimmers in oil.

Roasted Veg Soup Recipe-7

Roast in the middle shelf for an hour, or until the veg goes soft and the shallots start to blacken on the edges.

When they’re ready,Β blend them up with your stock. (I do this in a saucepan with this little beauty!)

Feel free to add less or more stock depending how thick you like your soups.

Pour into bowls and top with a little crumbled feta.

Roasted Veg Soup Recipe-8

Add a swirl (or stunning piece of abstract art) of cream and top with a sage leaf (if you’re expecting company).

Roasted Veg Soup Recipe-9

Make sure there’s some crunchy bread to hand, and dive in!

Dunker’s delight!

Make it for your friends and family as soon as humanly possible.

When they ooooh and ahhh and talk about what a wonderful chef you are…. just lean back, interlock your fingers and say;

“Thanks shallot!”

    This looks great! I’m a huge fan of soups for most of the year, and still addicted to them despite the weather slightlyyyy warming up. My current favourite is a Mexican-inspired bean soup packed with beans, veggies and lime. Souper! x

    I love soup, but it HAS to be hot. Cool soups seem like liquified salad and I’d rather eat my salad crunchy, not blended!! Definitely making this recipe today, have a butternut crying out to be used so thanks for this fab post! Sammie

    Love your tableware btw the bread block is beautiful! (Can wood be beautiful? Who cares. I’m calling it!)

  • Oh yum! I love making soup, filling a flask and heading down to the beach. It may be spring but our gorgeous Scottish beaches are fairly deserted and exposed: wild and brilliant! Hot soup is needed!

  • Such a souper idea.
    I agree, soup is great especially now when it is still deceptively pretty chilly out!

    Never had feta with soup before, I think I have been missing out!



  • Heather

    I’ll say this, your photos make it all look very appetizing & like a beautiful spread!

  • This looks soooooooo good, going to make some this weekend!

  • I’m still loving soup at the mo and I’ve actually got a soup recipe to share tomorrow. I’m totally pinning this as it looks delish.

  • I love soups. So easy to make. It’s still freezing cold here so salads are far from my mind!

  • I love a good pun! Can’t help laughing to myself when reading your posts – ‘thanks shallot!’

  • Yum this looks so good! x

  • This soup looks amazing! I love warm soup all year round so the fact that this soup is not chilled goes not bother me one little bit haha. I will be making this as soon as humanly possible πŸ™‚

  • Good Lord! I’ll totally do this. I’m soo hungry right now!

  • This looks lush! I love soup, will give it a go x

  • Looks incredible! Love the photography too

  • This looks delicious, I love soup, and you’re right…there’s no reason not to eat it year round. My apartment has AC after all haha! Can’t wait to try this out! xo

  • I would probably use up most of that bread because I would be dunking all of it in that soup! I don’t feel like you have to only eat soup in the fall. I actually like to eat tomato basil soup all year round.

  • Looks so yummy! πŸ™‚

  • This looks delicious, soup sounds really good right now. It’s still cold here in Toronto — waiting for the weather to finally warm up.

  • Oh wow, that looks amazing! I want to dunk that bread in the bowl of soup right now!

  • This is so similar to the soup I was addicted to this winter! I did mine in the slow cooker with a hefty kick of chilli though – Carrot and Butternut Squash Soup – there’s the link if anyone is interested!

  • This soup contains all of my favourites- I wouldn’t hold back on the feta either! πŸ™‚

  • I’m always down for a good bowl of hot soup! Especially right now – is it just me or does it seem like everyoneeeee has the sniffles at the moment?! Nothing some good old soup can’t cure!

  • looks souper πŸ˜‰ hah, totally stole your joke.
    roasted butternut squash is already perfect on it’s own but this soup looks like a major upgrade!


  • oh my ! This is on my to make list. The thought of the feta makes my mouth water.
