Pumpkin and Tomato Soup Recipe

With costume making complete and decorations packed away for another year, it's now time to make the annual pumpkin soup.

We've rounded up the display pumpkins at our Stoke-on-Trent Factory and they are now on their way to a local soup kitchen.

Try our quick and easy pumpkin and tomato soup recipe below:


1 to 2 pumpkins
A handful of tomatoes, approximately two thirds the weight of your pumpkin(s).
4 cloves garlic
2 sprigs thyme
1 red onion cut into wedges
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 pints vegetable stock
A splash of cream


Put all ingredients, excluding the stock, into a large Enamel Roasting Dish and coat everything in the oil. Roast in the oven at 220C/Fan 200C/Gas 7 for 35 - 40 mins.

Once roasted add to a Cooking Pot (off the heat). Remove the herbs and garlic skins, add the stock and blend until smooth with a Hand Blender.

Add to the hob and reheat until piping hot.

Finish off by adding a splash of cream before dishing up.
