Squash and beer mustard soup

Soup Serves 4 45 min
This soup pairs sweet squash with tangy mustard for a quick, straightforward vegetarian meal. If you can't find beer mustard (wholegrain mustard blended with ale and chilli), use any other wholegrain kind and add a pinch of chilli as well. Eat with a chunk of crusty bread for dunking.
