Pumpkin and Tomato Soup

PREP TIME 40 minutes including cooking
Serves 6-8

The pumpkin brings a sweetness balancing the acidity of the tomato and provides a beautiful smooth texture to this soup. This is a super economical light meal.


800g pumpkin
1 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes
1 large brown onion
3 sticks celery, with some leaves
1,200ml vegetable stock
2 Tablespoons tomato paste
Olive oil
Sprigs fresh thyme


  1. Chop the onion and celery and add to the olive oil in a large saucepan. Cook for 5 minutes.
  2. Peel the pumpkin and chop, add to the pot together with the tin of tomatoes. Cook for 2 minutes.
  3. Add the stock, tomato paste and thyme, bring to the boil, then cover and simmer until the vegetable are soft (about 20 minutes).
  4. Remove the thyme stalks and blend the soup until smooth. Serve with a dollop of sour cream, chopped fresh herbs and fresh bread. A dash of Worcestershire sauce also goes really well in this soup.
