Prep time
  • 20 Minutes
Cook Time
  • 1 hour
  • 4
  • 1/2 a medium pumpkin or 1 large butternut squash or any similar, firm fleshed , squash
  • 1 pint (550ml) Chicken or vegetable stock
  • 2 small onions
  • 3 fat cloves of garlic
  • Salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to gas mark 7, 210C. Peel the pumpkin or squash and dice into 1" (2.5cm) cubes Peal the onions and cut each through the root into six segments Separate the garlic cloves but do not crush or peel. Toss the pumpkin, onion and garlic in a little oil and spread in a single layer on to a large baking tray. Bake in a hot oven until the pumpkin is soft on the inside and brown around the edges. Bring the stock to the boil in a large saucepan. Remove from the heat. Remove the garlic and tip the pumpkin and onions into the stock. Squeeze the garlic puree from the skins and add to the pan. Use a hand blender to puree the soup. Add a little more boiling stock or water if it is too thick. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve. Freezes well but when reheating, take care that it doesn't burn to the base of the saucepan.

This is a sensational recipe for pumpkin soup: easy and absolutely delicious. The rating above is incorrect, I'm sure I tried to give this 5 stars but it only register as 2! Don't be put off, make this and enjoy! My 8 year old son can't get enough...

Adding rice cakes and then blitz makes the soup a lot thicker and a small bit of chilli works really well with the sweetness of butternut squash
