Ingredients for Roasted pumpkin and carrot soup

  • 1kg Kent pumpkin, peeled, deseeded, cut into 1cm pieces
  • 800g carrots, peeled, cut into 1cm pieces
  • 60ml (1/4 cup) olive oil
  • 2 brown onions, halved, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon mustard seeds
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon

    Roasted pumpkin and carrot soup, How to Make

    • Step 1
      Preheat oven to 210°C. Line a large roasting pan with non-stick baking paper. Place pumpkin and carrot in lined pan. Drizzle over 2 tablespoons of oil and toss to coat. Roast for 30-35 minutes or until golden and tender.
    • Step 2
      Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion. Season with salt. Reduce heat to low. Cook, stirring often, for 20 minutes or until soft. Add garlic, mustard seeds, coriander, cumin, turmeric, cardamom and chilli powder, if desired. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until aromatic and the mustard seeds start to pop.
    • Step 3
      Add the pumpkin, carrot, stock and water. Increase heat to medium. Cover and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Cook, covered, for 15 minutes. Uncover. Set aside for 15 minutes to cool slightly.
    • Step 4
      Transfer half the pumpkin mixture to the jug of a blender. Blend until smooth. Transfer the soup to a clean saucepan. Repeat with remaining pumpkin mixture. (To freeze, see tips)
    • Step 5
      Place over low heat and cook, stirring, for 4 minutes or until heated through. Ladle among serving bowls. Top with a dollop of yoghurt and stir to create a swirled effect. Serve with naan bread.

    Shopping tip: You’ll find the naan bread in the Asian food section at Woolworths.
