  • 1 medium leek, trimmed, halved, washed, sliced
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled, chopped
  • 1 L vegetable stock
  • 1 tbsp pure cream
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh chives

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper. Place pumpkin and garlic in a bowl. Add oil. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Arrange pumpkin mixture in a single layer on the prepared tray. Bake for 40 minutes or until pumpkin is golden and tender.
  2. Squeeze garlic cloves from skin, reserve. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add leek, stir for 3 minutes until softened. Then add potato, and stir for 5 minutes.
  3. Add stock and 2 cups of cold water. Season with pepper. Cover, bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes until potato is tender. Stir in roasted pumpkin and garlic. Cook for 5 minutes until heated through. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly.
  4. Blend pumpkin mixture in batches until smooth. Return to pan over low heat and stir for 2 to 3 minutes or until heated through. Spoon into serving bowls. Drizzle with cream and sprinkle with chives. Serve with crusty bread slices and a glass of Holm Oak 2018 Chardonnay.
