  1. Heat oil in a heavy-bottom pot. Add leeks, onion, celery, carrot, sweet potatoes, pumpkin and garlic; saute until they start to brown.
  2. Add bay leaf, stock and cream; bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until all vegetables are tender.

Sugar pumpkins look like the smaller versions of the larger Halloween pumpkins. They are smaller, sweeter and have more flavour than their larger counterparts. If unavailable, use butternut squash instead.
