Pumpkin, Apple and Sage Soup


Pumpkin, Apple and Sage Soup
A very large pumpkin had sat staring at me for quite a number of days in my vegetable rack so when Friday came (my day off) ... and it was raining, I thought I'd better turn the monster into something edible. Despite the time it took to chop up all the pumpkin flesh (a job I very much dislike!), it was on the table in less than an hour, so not bad really.

The apples were a bit of the spur of the moment thing, but they really worked and the cider vinegar gave it a tangy edge. I served it with some cheesy toasts using some of the Dorset Blue Vinney I was kindly sent from The Cheese Shed.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING THE PUMPKIN, APPLE AND SAGE SOUP

  • If you like it very spicy, add another teaspoon of chilli flakes.
  • Substitute the pumpkin for sweet potato or do half and half.
  • If you don't have any Bramley apples, some tart eating apples would work just as well.

  1. What an interesting combination - I adore sage and think it's an underused herb.
