    Pumpkin & roast almond soup

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 35 minutes 35 minutes

    Serves: 6


    150g blanched almonds
    1.5kg pumpkin or butternut squash
    50ml olive oil
    3 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
    1 litre Cooks’ Ingredients Chicken
    Stock, hot


    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Lay the almonds on a baking tray and roast for 10 minutes until golden.

    2. Meanwhile, using a sharp knife, peel away the skin and then halve and deseed the pumpkin. Cut it into large chunks then coarsely grate with a box grater or food processor fitted with a grater attachment. Heat the oil in a large, heavy-based pan, add the garlic and fry gently for about a minute until golden. Increase the temperature, add the grated pumpkin and almonds and fry for 10 minutes, stirring continuously. If the pumpkin starts to dry out at any point, add a ladleful of chicken stock.

    3. Add any remaining stock and simmer for 5 minutes. Take the pan off the heat and leave to cool for a few minutes. Blend the soup in batches in a liquidiser until smooth then return to the pan and reheat gently. Divide between warm bowls and serve garnished with toasted almonds or pumpkin seeds.
