Roasted Pumpkin and Honey Soup


I was at a conference this weekend, and for supper we were served a beautifully light and delicious soup. Without bread or butter or croutons. It was all I ate on Saturday evening,  and it was SO satisfying and creamy. It felt incredibly comforting and decadent, but was so light and healthy and delicious.

Hence I am trying to replicate it, so that I can stash a batch in the fridge, for some very healthy light dinners for myself...


Roasted Pumpkin and Honey Soup

1 butternut pumpkin, cubed
1 red onion, cut into wedges
2 cloves garlic, crushed
Spray oil
750 ml chicken stock
1 ½ tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
Salt and pepper, to taste

Creamed low fat cottage cheese to garnish
Snipped chives to garnish

1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
2. Coat cubed pumpkin with oil, garlic and place on roasting tray.
3. Scatter onion throughout pumpkin.
4. Cook pumpkin and onion for 40 minutes or until golden and caramelised.
5. Heat stock and add cooked pumpkin, onion, honey, mustard, pepper and salt.
6. Simmer gently for 20mins
7. Blend until soup has a smooth consistency, either with a stick blender or in a processor
8. Garnish with the creamed cottage cheese and snipped chives.


If you have any really healthy but deliciously decadent tasting soup recipes, share with me?
