• 3 large peeled potatoes
  • 1 peeled sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 a pumpkin
  • 4 cloves of garlic (skin on)
  • 1 peeled carrot
  • 2 peeled brown onions
  • Sprinkle of paprika
  • Mixed herbs
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Chilli flakes

Preparing vegetables

  • Begin by cutting the potatoes into wedges and sweet potato and pumpkin into finger-width slices
  • Quarter the onions and roughly chop the carrot
  • Place your garlic in alfoil. Drizzle with olive oil and seal

Roasting vegetables

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees
  2. Place all of your vegetables (bar the spring onions) in a large baking tray
  3. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, paprika and your favourite mixed herbs
  4. Place in the oven for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and flip all vegetables. If they are looking a little dry, add a little water to the bottom of the tray
  5. Return to oven for a further 20 minutes or until all vegetables are tender

Preparing soup

  1. Remove your vegetables from the oven
  2. Remove skin from onions and pumpkin. Remove garlic from both the alfoil and skins
  3. Place all vegetables into a large high pot and place on stove at a very low temperature
  4. Pour 500-millilitres of vegetable stock into the pot with the vegetables
  5. Using an electric blender, blend your vegetables and stock until smooth (you may still see some chunks)
  6. Pour in a further 200-millilitres of stock and add a small sprinkle of chilli flakes
  7. Blend until completely smooth (it should be lightly bubbling)
  8. Lastly, add more stock to achieve desired texture
  9. Remove from the stove, garnish and serve

Optional: Once removed from the stove, stir in sour cream or cream.
