Spiced Roasted Pumpkin and Parsnip Soup

I LOVE roasted pumpkin and turning it into a soup is just delish. The soup is rich and sweet from the honeyed parsnips and smokey from the roasted vegies with a Harissa spiciness



  • 1.

    Drizzle some oil in a large roasting pan.

  • 2.

    Put the pumpkin sprinkled with the Harissa, the parsnips drizzled with honey and the garlic and capsicum halves drizzled with olive oil.

  • 3.

    Sprinkle some salt over the lot and bake in a 180 C oven til golden - about 50 mins

  • 4.

    Saute the onion in a stock pot in a little olive oil.

  • 5.

    When golden add the chicken stock and the roasted vegetables

  • 6.

    With the flat end of a knife, squeeze out the roasted garlic from their skins and throw into the pot

  • 7.

    Add the rosemary and salt and pepper and bring to the boil

  • 8.

    Lower heat and simmer for 30 mins

  • 9.

    Take off the heat and blitz with a stick blender til smooth

  • 10.

    Add the cream if desired
