Chris' Pumpkin Soup

Some dishes take you by surprise. In the middle of a quiet dinner, they grab you and force you to sit up and take notice. It's even more surprising when that dish happens to be soup. It happened so at a dinner with my friend Chris. We started off with his lovely homemade bread and salad and then he brought this soup in. A soup with punchy flavours that also freezes well. I eventually got the recipe off Chris and I now make this often, leaving bowlfuls in the freezer for a rainy day. You should too! Ingredients 250 grams yellow pumpkin, cut into chunky cubes 250 grams potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes 1 small onion, peeled and roughly chopped 1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and thinly sliced 1 small carrot, peeled and sliced 1 leek stem, washed, cleaned and roughly chopped 1-2 celery stalks, washed, cleaned and roughly chopped 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 10-12 peppercorns Roasted pumpkin seeds and dill to garnish Find the largest saucepan you own and heat the olive oil in it.
