returning home in winter is a bit of a drag but... it does mean it is perfect soup weather - which is excellent news for a soup lover like me!
a tasty 'warm-up' dish is this yummy roast pumpkin soup - perfect for a cold winter's day/night!
1 butternut pumpkin, diced into large segments
3 cloves of garlic, peeled and left whole
1 tablespoon of tomato paste
1 L of water
1 vegetable stock cube
2 tablespoons of coconut cream
place the pumpkin pieces and garlic cloves into a preheated oven (200'C) in a large roasting pan for 30-45 minutes or until soft.
transfer the roasted pumpkin pieces and garlic into a large soup pot, add the tomato paste, stock cube and water and bring to the boil. simmer for 15-20 minutes. add the coconut cream. using a bamix, or similar hand blender, blitz the soup until smooth.
serve with some homemade croutons and enjoy!
