Almost any vegetable can go in a soup, but at this time of year, pumpkins are in season, affordable and delicious!  Our Head of Retail, Teva Stewart has shared his go-to pumpkin soup recipe below and he reckons that a good pumpkin soup can be made great with crumbled goat feta, a squeeze of lemon and wedge of Shelly Bay Baker Fugasse or focaccia!

Add oil and onions to a large pot and sauté on medium heat until softened. Add ginger, garlic and spices and cook for another 1-2 minutes to release the flavours.

Add pumpkin pieces and mix well with the onions and spices, then add stock/water so that the pumpkin is just covered.

Simmer on a low/medium heat for 35-45 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Once pumpkin is soft, whizz with a stick blender or puree by hand with a potato masher. Add salt and pepper to taste.

To make extra delicious, try any of the following toppings: Zany Zeus feta or Raglan coconut yoghurt, Woody’s pancetta and/or a squeeze of lemon!
