Pumpkin Soup Recipe


As the leaves start to change colour and the weather gets cooler, there's nothing more comforting than eating a bowl of warming pumpkin soup around the table with my family.

I enjoy this recipe served with fresh crusty bread with lashings of butter.

  3. Rinse lentils in plenty of cold water
  4. Crush all the seeds in pestle & mortar
  5. Put all ingredients in a large saucepan and bring to the boil. Gently simmer for about 45mn. If you like your soup spicy, you could add a pinch of chilli flakes.
  6. Remove from heat and leave to cool before thoroughly blitzing in a liquidiser until smooth.
  7. Heat up and serve with a dollop or two of cream cheese stirred in, accompanied by fresh crunchy bread and topped with some toasted pumpkin seeds.
