The cabbage soup diet (and Beyonce) can do one - spicy butternut squash soup is our key to project rexy...i mean, health.
Start by chopping onion, garlic and fresh chillis and fry them in a little olive oil until soft.
Chop a butternut squash - you'll need a sharp knife and a good arm, they're the everest of vegetables.
Add the butternut squash to the onion etc, add a chopped potato (leave out if you're hardcore), as well as a couple of sticks of celery and salt and pepper. Then cook for a few mins until the squash starts to soften.
Then add the stock, cook for 30 mins or until said sharp knife cuts the squash easily. Then blend away.
Pour into a bowl, swirl through a spoon of philadelphia or grate some parmesan, then serve with crusty brown bread (and butter, obvs).
I've dropped a dress size already. Probably.
