  • 400 g butternut pumpkin, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 medium brown onion, quartered
  • 2 small cloves garlic, whole with skins intact
  • 1 red apple, cored and quartered
  • 1 ½ tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ½ tsp sea salt (plus more to taste)
  • ¼ tsp black pepper (plus more to taste)
  • 600 ml vegetable or chicken stock
  • 150-300 ml water
  • Single cream or coconut cream for serving (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC (400ºF) and line a large baking tray with non-stick paper or foil.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the pumpkin, onion, garlic, and apple with the olive oil, cinnamon, thyme, nutmeg, salt, and pepper.
  3. Dump the vegetables onto the baking tray and spread them out evenly. Make sure they don’t overlap too much or they will steam instead of roast and a lot of the flavour will be lost.
  4. Roast the vegetables for 35-45 minutes, tossing them halfway through. You’ll know they’re done when you can easily insert a fork into the pumpkin and the rest of the vegetables are caramelised.
  5. Take the tray out of the oven and set the garlic aside. Add the rest of the vegetables to a high-powered blender along with the stock. Peel the garlic and add their soft flesh to the blender.
  6. Blend on medium-high speed until completely smooth. Add water as necessary until you reach your desired consistency – you may not need all 300ml. Taste and season to your liking.

  7. Divide the soup between two bowls and serve with a drizzle of cream and a side of crusty bread.
