1 large onion
2 ribs celery
2 stalks lemon grass
1/2 inch piece ginger
1 chilli pepper
2 cloves garlic
1/2 large butternut squash
4 small pears (2 large ones)
4 cups vegetable stock

Peel the butternut squash and chop into bite size chunks. Core and peal the pears and cut into quarters.

Add pears and butternut squash to the soup pot.

Pour in the vegetable stock and bring to a boil. Turn down the hear and simmer for 30 minutes or until the squash is tender.
