For the Soup

  • 2 small onions
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cooking pumpkin or medium sized butternut squash
  • 2 large carrots
  • 1 Tbsp mild curry powder
  • 2 vegetable stock cubes

To Serve

  • 150 ml natural yogurt


  • Peel and roughly chop the onion.
  • In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil then gently cook the onions over a low-medium heat until translucent.
  • Meanwhile, de-seed, peel and chop the pumpkin or squash into rough cubes. Peel the carrot and roughly chop.
  • Add the pumpkin and carrot to the pan and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add the curry powder and cook for a further minute or so until fragrant.
  • Crumble in the two stock cubes and pour over boiling water until the vegetables are just covered in the pan.
  • Bring to the boil and cook for 15-20 minutes until the vegetables are cooked through.
  • Whizz with a stick blender until smooth.
  • When ready to serve, ladle the soup into bowls.
  • Spoon natural yogurt into a disposable piping bag or freezer bag.
  • Snip off the corner of the bag, then pipe a spiral of yogurt onto the top of each bowl of soup.
  • Working from the middle, drag a cocktail stick through the surface of the soup to create a spider web effect.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!
