There’s nothing better than settling down to a steaming bowl of this delicious soup on a cold autumn or winter’s day. Hearty and filling with a little kick, it’s the perfect hug in a bowl.


  • 1.3kg butternut pumpkin, cut into quarters, seeds removed
  • 60ml light olive oil
  • 2 tbsp chipotle in adobo, finely chopped
  • 160g store - bought chargrilled capsicum, seeds removed
  • 500ml salt - reduced chicken stock
  • Splash of milk
  • 1 small chorizo, skin removed, finely c hopped/crumble
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • Parsley, to garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 200ºC fan. Whisk together olive oil and chipotle in adobo, season with salt then rub all over the pumpkin quarters. Spread on a Wiltshire 26.5x21x2cm Enamel Tray and bake for 40 mins, turning every 10 - 15 mins. Allow to cool slightly then peel and discard the skin.
  2. Combine pumpkin flesh and capsicum in blender, add a small amount of stock and blend until smooth, adding enough stock to get the soup to a consistency you like. Add a splash of milk, season with salt and pepper and blend to combine.
  3. Place the finely chopped chorizo in a large, cold frypan over medium - high heat. Fry until crispy. Serve sprinkled over the soup with a little parsley to garnish.
