Winter warming soup!

Looking for a go-to recipe that’s bound to keep you warm this winter?

Then look no further than my tasty pumpkin soup.

Creamy, smooth and most of all delicious, with a hint of heat, this winter soup is a tried and tested one in my house.

My kids love it so much they even take it to school in a thermos for lunch!

Simple ingredients combined with an even simpler method makes for one comforting soup you’ll go back to again and again, I hope.

Add a piece or two of warm garlic bread, or a crusty roll, and what’s not to love?


1 medium butternut pumpkin peeled, seeded and cubed

2 cups chicken stock (I like to use those jelly-looking stock pods)

2 cups vegetable stock

1 brown onion diced

1 carrot diced

A good chunk of sweet potato

Cracked pepper to your liking


Combine all ingredients in a suitable pot on the stove and let simmer for about 60 minutes (or until vegetables are tender).

If you’re like me and prefer a smooth soup, allow the soup to cool before blitzing in a food processor or blender.

Serve with fresh buttered bread or rolls, or a piece or two of garlic bread and some fresh chives.
