A deliciously rich pumpkin soup. Pumpkin, carrots and onions are roasted, before being pureed with cooked potato, stock and double cream. Serve with a dollop of cream and crusty bread.
Sugar pumpkins are similar to the large orange pumpkins you find during Halloween. They are smaller, sweeter and have more flavour - optimal for this or any other pumpkin recipe. If unavailable, substitute in butternut or kabocha squash.
1 and 1/4 TABLESPOONS of nutmeg!! - sure, it does taste good - but if you eat too much, I'm guessing five or six hours later things will turn a bit weird. (and don't give this level of nutmeg to small kids, or pregnant women either). - 02 Aug 2011
Does taste yummier with the pumpkin roasted, mmm! - 17 Oct 2010
Just made this this morning, it's delicious, doubled the quantity for the size of pumpkin and only added one and a half teaspoons of nutmeg. My son said it was lovely and he hates soup normally. Will definately do this again - 02 Nov 2012
