  • Feeds: 4
  • Time: 60 mins


  • 1 medium sized pumpkin (1.8kg)
  • 1 large onion (chopped)
  • 4 garlic cloves (crushed)
  • 500ml chicken or vegetable stock
  • 120ml double cream
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • A pinch of salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan and gently cook the onion and garlic until soft and golden.
