    1. Cut pumpkin into medium pieces, simmer with stock, tomatoes, onions and spring onions until tender. Puree in blender and season with salt and pepper.
    2. Add cream just before serving if soup is to be hot, and after chilling if served cold.


    This soup works equally well with any other pumpkin varieties if you cannot find Australian blue pumpkins, or with butternut squash.
