Pumpkin, Rosemary & Ginger Soup Recipe


For this recipe, I picked this sweet harlequin squash, a confection squash, and a racer pumpkin, but you could use any type or combination of squash or pumpkin. 


1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp butter
1 large brown onion
5cm piece fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic
3 sprigs of rosemary
1kg pumpkin / squash
4 large carrots
1 litre vegetable stock
2 litres boiling water
Handful pumpkin seeds and a drizzle of olive oil (to serve)


Start the prep by roughly chopping the peeled squashes and pumpkins, the carrots and the onion. Finely chop the ginger and garlic.


Melt the butter and oil in a large pan, and gently fry the ginger, garlic, onion and rosemary. Next, add the carrots, pumpkin and squash. Sauté for 10 minutes, until the pumpkin begins to soften and brown slightly. Pour over the stock and the boiling water and ensure that the ingredients are completely covered.  Add extra boiling water to the pot to cover the vegetables if necessary.  Simmer for around 30 minutes, or until the vegetables are soft.

Remove from the heat and use a hand blender to blitz the soup until smooth.
