    Gingernut's Note:

    Pumpkin soup is an Australian favourite, but I sometimes find it a bit bland. This recipe adds a little something extra, without overpowering the pumpkin flavour. You can garnish this with some coriander leaves (AKA cilantro). Can be served hot or cold. Note: if you like to make LOTS of soup, you'll want to double this. It really does make only about 4 serves. It looks like a lot of pumpkin, but it cooks down to nothing.

    • 600 g diced butternut pumpkin (You'll need a 1 kg pumpkin)
    • 1 large onion, chopped

    • 1 teaspoon sugar


    1. 1
      Saute pumpkin, garlic, ginger and onion lightly in vegetable oil.

      Add stock (it should just cover the pumpkin). Bring to boil and cook gently for 15 minutes.
    3. 3
      Let cool slightly and puree in blender or food processor, or use your stick blender straight in the pot.
    4. 4

      Simmer another five minutes.

      I roasted the butternut the night before so deepen the flavour- and for ease, as you can just scoop it out - i don't like peeling and chopping squash!. i used ketchup to combine the tomato paste and sugar so i did not have to open a jar or tomato paste. nice soup and simple recipe.

      Fantastic combination of flavours - I think this is about as good as pumpkin soup can get! I served sprinkled with some chives and served along with a crusty roll.
