Ingredients

  • 4 Oz butter

Method

  • Hollow your pumpkin and peel. Then cut into small chunks and drizzle with olive oil and put into the oven at 180 degrees for 35 minutes. stir regularly
  • When you reach about 30 minutes of the roasting time, fry your onion in the butter at a low temperature. Once the onion is starting to brown, boil the kettle and add 1 litre of vegetable stock to the saucepan and keep on the boil.

  • When your pumpkin is roasted , remove from the oven and add to the saucepan with the onion and vegetable stock
  • Simmer for another few minutes and remove from the heat
