Ingredients 

For the bowls: 

  • 4 small baking pumpkins
  • 2 teaspoons of sugar
  • Salt

For the soup:

  • Nudespice Spice & All Seasoning
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped
  • Salt
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 1 medium butternut squash peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of heavy cream (optional)
  • Freshly ground pepper

For the topping:

  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Nudespice Spice & All Seasoning
  • Sourdough croutons 

Method

Make the bowls: 

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Using a paring knife to cut a large circle around the stem of each pumpkin. Remove the lid and scoop out the seeds and fibres. Sprinkle the inside of each with 1/2 teaspoon of sugar and salt. Place the pumpkins and lids on a baking sheet; roast until tender, 20 to 35 minutes, depending on their size.

Make the soup: 

Melt the butter in a large saucepan over a low heat. Add the onion and 1 teaspoon of salt. Strip the thyme leaves into a pot, increase the heat to medium and cook, stirring until glazed (3-4 minutes). Add 5 cups of water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a low simmer, uncovered, until the squash is tender (15-20 minutes). 

Working in batches, transfer the soup to a blender. Crack the lid to let steam escape and puree until smooth, at this point you can add your delicious Nudespice Spice & All seasoning to give it that extra special kick. Return to the saucepan. Now it's time to fill your pumpkin bowls and enjoy.

Our seasonal 3 squash curry is made with 3 types of roasted squash as well as apple. For our apple we used Bramley, as eventhough it has a great sour flavour when it's raw, when cooked – it becomes soft and almost buttery in texture without disintegrating.  Which makes it ideal for roasting too.
