Recipe: Roasted Pumpkin Soup!

Nothing says autumn like pumpkin (if you can say that :)). I had no idea what to do with one. Fortunately I remember watching one of Donna Hay's cooking shows and she made this delicious looking pumpkin soup. As always I didn't follow the recipe strictly, but it turned out incredible anyway. And this colour! Great step into the fall season.

Ingredients (makes 2-3 bowls):

  • one hokkaido pumpkin
  • small onion
  • olive oil
  • salt&pepper
  • small clove of garlic
  • 750ml of vegetable or chicken stock
  • herbes de Provence
  • pumpkin seeds
  • 3 slices of bread

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Cut the pumpkin in half and scoop out all the seeds. Drizzle the pumpkin with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake until soft, about 30-40 minutes. Meanwhile add 2 tablespoons to the frying pan and fry onion and garlic. When the pumpkin is baked,  scoop the pumpkin flesh out of its skin into a blender. Add fried onion and garlic, vegetable stock. Blend until smooth. Pour the soup into a saucepan, add herbes de Provence and season with salt & pepper. Heat up the soup.  For croutons: slice the bread into small squares and fry until golden brown on the same frying pan (if needed, add more olive oil).
Serve with croutons and pumpkin seeds.

Bon Appetit!
