"At Halloween, rather than waste this versatile and nutritious vegetable, use the flesh to make this warming autumnal soup (works at any other time of the year too)."

1 tbsp
olive oil
1 cloves
½ tbsp
curry powder
½ kg
350 ml
vegetable stock
pumpkin seed (for serving)


oven, saucepan, immersion blender

  • Step 1/10

    • oven

    Preheat the oven to 180 C.

  • Step 2/10

    • ½ kg pumpkin
    • 2 apple

    Peel, deseed and chop the pumpkin and apples into bite-sized chunks. Cox apples work best but any large apple is fine.

  • Step 3/10

    • 1 tbsp olive oil

    Toss the pumpkin in 1 tbsp of olive oil then place on a roasting tin. Cook for 30 minutes then add the apple. Cook for another 30 minutes or so until soft and a little charred at the edges, turn them occasionally.

  • Step 4/10

    • 1 cloves garlic
    • 1 onions

    While that’s roasting, finely chop the onions and peeled garlic.

  • Step 5/10

    • saucepan

    In a large saucepan, add the remaining tbsp of olive oil and once hot, fry the onions and garlic until the begin to soften.

  • Step 6/10

    • ½ tbsp curry powder
    • ½ tsp chili flakes
    • salt
    • pepper

    Add the spices (curry powder and chilli flakes to suit your taste) and season with salt and pepper.

  • Step 7/10

    • 350 ml vegetable stock

    Once cooked, add the pumpkin and apple then pour in the vegetable stock and reduce to a simmer until the pumpkin is very soft.

  • Step 8/10

    • pumpkin seed (for serving)

    Whilst the oven is still hot (you can turn it off and just use the residual heat), toast the pumpkin seeds on a baking tray for a few minutes.

  • Step 9/10

    • immersion blender

    Using a hand immersion blender, blend the mixture in the pan until the soup has reached a smooth consistency. Add extra stock or water if it’s too thick and season again to taste. You can pour it all into a food processor if you don’t have an immersion blender.

  • Step 10/10

    • crème fraîche (for serving)

    Serve with a spoonful of crème fraiche in each bowl (or coconut yoghurt if you don’t have that) and sprinkle some of the toasted pumpkin seeds over the top.

  • Enjoy your meal!
