Ingredients (for 4 people) :

    For the soup:
    4 red peppers, deseeded, cut into quarters, roasted for 25 minutes and skins removed
    30g butter
    1 tbsp rapeseed oil
    6 shallots, diced peeled
    750g pumpkin, peeled and diced into 2 cm pieces
    1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
    4 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
    Leaves of one sprig of thyme
    1.2 litre good vegetable stock
    100ml double cream (optional)
    Sea salt and black pepper

    To serve:
    2 tsp chives, finely chopped
    30g pumpkin seeds, toasted
    120ml low fat crème fraiche

Method:

Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6.

To make the soup:

1. Place the peppers skin side up, on a baking sheet and roast in the preheated oven for 25 minutes, until the skins are charred.

2. Remove from the oven and place in a bowl. Cover with cling film and leave to cool. Once cool, peel off the skins, and reserve the flesh.

3. Meanwhile, melt the butter with oil in a large, heavy based saucepan. Add the shallots, pumpkin and red chilli, season with sea salt and black pepper and sweat the vegetables for 5-10 minutes without browning.

4. Add the garlic and thyme and cook on a low heat for a further minute. Pour in the vegetable stock, bring to the boil and simmer gently for 15 minutes. Add in the red peppers and cook for a further 5 minutes.
