Spiced Pumpkin & Lentil Soup



  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large pan and add the onion, garlic, coriander, cumin and chilli.
  2. Cook until the onion has softened. Add the pumpkin puree and red lentils, cover with stock and allow to simmer. Keep topping up the stock as required as the lentils cook.
  3. When lentils have softened completely, season with pumpkin spice, salt and black pepper and stir in cream or alternative.
  4. You may blend it if you want a completely smooth texture or just finish it off with black pepper and enjoy with some pumpkin bread.
