Pumpkin Paradise

We love soup…..any sort of soup….but our absolute favourite is pumpkin…..yes we all share the same favourite (well we don’t know about ER, but she sure liked this one).

Yesterday we picked our first pumpkin and Mama made Dadda’s favourite chewy crusty bread and we had a scrummy dinner.

Here’s the soup recipe:
2 onions, carefully chopped
as much garlic as you can manage, chopped as well as a 6 year old can
a good shake of cumin (2 teaspoons perhaps)
a little bit less coriander
about the same of turmeric
a pinch of ginger
a pinch of nutmeg
a few cracks of black pepper
as many mustard seeds as you feel like
fry together in a little olive oil and butter until nice-n-smelly

6 parsnips, chopped up
3/4 large pumpkin just picked from the garden(that’s all that would fit in the pot)
this one actually

a few cups of chicken stock left over from the other night
add and bring to the boil, boil for five minutes or so transfer the pot to the cooking bag and leave a few hours


a can of coconut cream
just before serving stir in and sprinkle fresh coriander on top – oh yeah, you need to whizz it up so it’s nice and smooth like this:


serve with Jim Lahey’s New York Times No Knead Bread
