Serves: 6 servings
Ingredients
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 142ml pot double cream
  • handful pumpkin seed from a packet
  • 4 slices wholemeal seeded bread
  • 700ml vegetable stock
  • 1kg pumpkins peeled, deseeded and chopped into chunks
Instructions
  1. Take a large saucepan and heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil and then slowly cook two nicely chopped onions until soft but not colored, for about 5 minutes. Now, add 1kg of deseeded, peeled and chopped pumpkin to the pan and continue to cook for about 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until it starts to turn golden and soften. Take the pan and now pour in it 700ml vegetable stock and season with pepper and salt.
  2. Bring it to the boil and simmer until the squash is very soft, for about 10 minutes. Next, pour in the pan 142ml of double cream, bring it back to the boil, and then purée it with a hand blender. You can now push the soup through a fine sieve into a different pan in order to get an extra-velvety consistency. Now, the soup can be frozen for up to two months. Slice the crusts from 4 slices of wholemeal seed bread while the soup is cooking, and then cut the bread into small croutons.
  3. Take a frying pan and heat in it the remaining two tablespoons of olive oil. Now, fry the bread until it becomes crisp. Put a handful of pumpkin seeds to the pan and cook it until they are toasted, for about a few minutes. You can do this a day ahead and store it in an airtight container. If it is necessary, reheat the soup and taste for seasoning. Now, serve scattered with seeds and croutons and if you want you can drizzle it with more olive oil.
