Pumpkin Soup

This is a nice, hearty Autumnal soup. I decided to make it after we received a pumpkin in an organic mixed veggie box that we ordered. It's sort of based on a few recipes I found via google, but none of them really matched what ingredients were available.


A pumpkin
6 spring onions (or 1 onion - I only had spring onions at the time)
1 litre vegetable stock
A small amount of butter.


Chop the pumpkin into 1cm cubes. Finely chop the onion.
Melt the butter in the pan, and fry the onion until it goes opaque.
Mix in the pumpkin, then pour over the stock.
Boil until the pumpkin is soft - for me this took about 25 minutes.
Leave to cool, then blend with a blender.

At this point ours tasted delicious, but resembled baby food, so it may need watering down a bit before eating.
