  1. Cut the pumpkin or butternut squash into 3cm slices, make sure to cut the skin off your pumpkin and scoop all the seeds and and guts out. Once you cut your pumpkin into slices cut them into 4cm chunks.
  2. In a medium sized saucepan place your water, broth, pumpkin, onion and garlic, if water doesn’t cover the pumpkin dont worry its fine.
  3. Bring the mixture to a boil uncovered, once boiled reduce the heat and let it simmer until your pumpkin is tender, this should take around 10 minutes.

  6. Place your cream into the pumpkin soup and stir, make sure never to boil your soup once the cream has been added as the cream will split.
