Butternut soup is always a winner. Experiment with this. Take out the packet soup and sweet chilli sauce and add 2 – 3 Granny Smith apples, peeled and chopped, an onion and a little curry powder. It is astonishing what one can do to make the presentation look inviting. Hollow out some small pumpkins and use as containers for the soup; or try serving it in shot glasses accompanied by croutons on small skewers.
