  1. Heat the oil in a large pan set over a medium heat. Add the onions and a little seasoning, and cook for 5-10 mins, until softened.
  2. Add the garlic, cook for 1 min or until fragrant, then stir in the squash, sage and thyme. Season with a little black pepper, then increase the heat and cook for 2 mins, or until the vegetables start to colour. Pour in the stock and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10-12 mins, until the squash is tender.
  3. Add the broad beans and sweetcorn and cook for a further 3-4 mins, until all the ingredients are warmed through; season to taste. Spoon into a serving bowl and garnish with extra sage and thyme. Serve with crusty bread for mopping up the juices, if you like.
