Directions

  1. Heat extra virgin olive oil in a pan and add onions and salt until softened, add a pinch of thyme whilst this is happening.
  2. Add garlic and ginger until fragrant then add the squash and potatoes and stir them around in the pan.
  3. Pour boiling water on ingredients until nearly covered, but about 2cm out of water. Add the chicken stock and stir so evenly combined.
