Method Prep:15min › Cook:45min › Ready in:1hr
Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
Place chopped garlic, pepper, tomato and asparagus into a baking dish. Toss with 1 tablespoon oil and salt.
Roast until well cooked and pepper is slightly charred, about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, bring water, bay leaf, stock cube, whole garlic clove, pumpkin and onion to the boil. Cook until the pumpkin is soft and mushy, about 20-30 minutes. If you'd like a thinner soup, add more water.
When roasted vegetables are done, scrape everything into the soup except a few pieces of pepper (for garnish).
Remove bay leaf and mash the soup with a potato masher. Return bay leaf. Season to taste. Reheat until warm.
Chop reserved pepper and serve it with the soup.
You can also use any other winter squash you feel like, such as butternut or acorn.
