Thai Pumpkin Soup

This lovely warming soup is a real favourite in the winter months, just the thing after a little while out in the crisp outdoors.

 

Ingredients: Serves two

 

500g pumpkin or squash, peeled and roughly chopped

1 tablespoon vegetable or olive oil

1 small red onion, sliced

1 tablespoon grated ginger

1 lemongrass, firmly pressed

1 tablespoon Thai red curry paste

100ml light coconut milk

400ml vegetable stock

½ tablespoon lime juice

Pinch of ground sea salt

Pinch of freshly ground black pepper

½ red chilli, sliced, to serve (optional)

 

Prep

 

Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.

 

Toss the pumpkin or squash in a roasting tin with half the oil and seasoning, then roast for 30 minutes until golden and tender.

 

Meanwhile, put the remaining oil in a pan with the onion, ginger and lemongrass. Gently cook for 5-6 minutes until the onion has softened.

 

Next stir in the Thai red curry paste for 1 min, then add the roasted pumpkin (or squash) then add the stock and 75ml of coconut milk, bring to a simmer, cook for 5 minutes.

 

Remove the pan from the heat and allow the soup to cool for a few minutes, remove the lemongrass and blend in a food processor or with a hand blender until really smooth, you may need to do this in a couple of batches to get a really smooth soup, just add a little extra stock if you want the soup a little smoother.

Finally return to the heat and add the seasoning, lime juice and serve with a tablespoon of the remain coconut milk swirled on top.
