Online Shop back open with limited dispatch times

We have now reopened our online shop, but rather than dispatching on every business day like before, until further notice we will only be dispatching orders once per week on Wednesdays.
We hope to resume normal service as soon as possible when the situation begins to return to normal. We hope all our customers, both old and new remain safe in this worrying time.

Spiced Pumpkin Soup

I absolutely adore pumpkin soup come Halloween, it is the only reason I buy a pumpkin! It is naturally gluten and dairy free and the spices in them make it so tasty and delicious, it's not like a vegetable soup, it almost has a sweetness to it which is both rich and delicate at the same time if you get the spices just right!

1. Chop the pumpkin flesh into bite size chunks and put in a large saucepan, finely chop the garlic and onion and add to the pumpkin.

2. Add the vegetable stock to the saucepan, place over a medium heat and simmer until the pumpkin is nice and tender, this will take 40-50 mins. While the vegetables are cooking, place a few tablespoons of the pumpkin seeds from the middle of the pumpkin on a baking tray and place in the oven on gas mark 1 or 2, for around an hour to dry out. Alternative you could use pre brought pumpkin seeds.

3. Once the veges are tender, remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly for 10-15 mins, place in a blender and purée the mixture until smooth then place back into the saucepan.

4. Add all the spices, vinegar and tamari to the soup and mix well, put back on the heat for 5 to 10 mins until it is brought back to the boil. Spoon the soup into bowls and top with 1/2tbsp of the dried pumpkin seeds.

NB: If it isn't the right time of year for pumpkin you could always use butternut squash, almost the same taste only very subtle differences.
