Roasted pumpkin, cabbage & bacon broth


  • Preheat oven to 200°C fan forced (220°C normal).
  • Peel, seed and cut the pumpkin into 1 cm thick slices. Then put in a lightly oiled roasting tray, spray with oil, season and cook in the oven until very tender (but still stays in one piece).
  • Heat a little fresh oil in a heavy-bottomed pot and gently sauté the bacon, onions and garlic until tender, regularly stirring.
  • Add the stock and seasonings, and bring to the boil. Then add the cabbage and cook for 10-15 mins until soft. Taste for seasoning.
  • To serve, put a few pieces of warm pumpkin in individual flat soup bowls and top with the soup, a dollop of pesto and a sprinkling of parmesan.
