    Dawn’s Pumpkin Soup


    • 1 pumpkin, flesh only
    • 1 knob butter
    • 1 onion, chopped
    • 1 carrot, chopped
    • Vegetable stock
    • 1 tbsp curry powder
    • 1 tsp mixed herbs
    • Salt and pepper, to taste
    • Double cream, to serve


    1. Chop up the hollowed out flesh of the Jack O’Lantern, and sautée it in a knob of butter in a pan along with 1 chopped onion and 1 finely chopped carrot.
    2. Next make up some vegetable stock according to the packet instructions. You’ll need enough to half fill a large soup pan, and bring the mixture to the boil. Then leave to simmer for about 20-30 minutes.
    3. Add roughly a tablespoon of curry powder and a teaspoon of mixed herbs, then season to taste. Add a generous splash of double cream and serve.
