Want a good recipe to have with all those pumpkins?

Pumpkin Soup with Sage Pesto

  • 1kg diced pumpkin
  • 2x potatoes, diced
  • 2x large onions
  • 1.5Lt chicken stock

Chuck the above ingredients into your pot and bring to the boil, then simmer until the vegies are soft. Blend, then season with salt and pepper to taste, as well as a pinch of nutmeg. Serve into bowls, and add a spoon of the following pesto:

  • 8g Sage
  • 20g flat-leaf parsley
  • 1tbsp toasted pine nuts
  • 1/3 cup toasted walnuts
  • pinch rock salt
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 50g Good quality parmesan, romano, or pecorino cheese, grated.

Blend all the ingredients together (except the cheese) until you have a green paste. You may need to add more oil, maybe salt too – see how you go. When its blended, add in the cheese and stir it all through.

You could look at adding a dollop of cream into each bowlful too. Maybe even sour cream. Experiment. The amounts of the ingredients can also be altered, depending on what you have available, and how many people you want to cook for.
