Marius' Butternut Soup (Wheat, Gluten & Dairy Free)

We have beautiful memories of fantastic family holiday's with our extended family, from my husbands side. And on these holidays we usually take turns cooking to share the load. My Brother in Law, Marius, has on more than one occasion treated us to his delicious version of Butternut soup!

1. In a large soup pot melt the butter. Add onions, butternut and apple and stir to coat. Cover and cook over the lowest possible heat for 10mins. Check that it doesn't burn.
2. Stir in curry powder, nutmeg and maizena, together with orange rind. Cook for 1 minute - to develop spices.
3. Pour in chicken stock and hot milk and bring to the boil, stirring. Adjust heat to simmer, covering to prevent too much evaporation. Cook for another 20 mins.

5. Add the orange juice, and reheat, but do not boil.
6. Taste, and season if necessary.
7. Serve while piping hot!
