Pumpkin Scone Recipe

Organic Times
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 6-8 serves

Ingredients

  • 50 grams Organic Times Salted Butter
  • 1 large onion peeled and roughly chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic peeled and minced
  • 1kg butternut pumpkin, skin/seeds removed (roughly cubed)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3-4 cups vegetable stock
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper (to season )
  • 1/2 cup - 1 cup sour cream, for piping (room temperature)

Method

  1. In a large soup pot over medium heat, melt butter.
  2. Add onion and sauté in butter until just softened. Stir through minced garlic.
  3. Add cubed pumpkin and cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Add bay leaf and pour over enough stock to cover the pumpkin.
  5. Cover and bring to the boil.
  6. Once boiling, reduce heat to low-medium and simmer for 20-30 minutes or until pumpkin has completely softened. Discard the bay leaf.
  7. Turn off heat and using a stick blender, blend soup until smooth. Or use a high-speed food processor, blend soup in batches until smooth then return to the pot.
  8. Place pot back onto the stove over a medium heat.
  9. Season soup with cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and pepper, mix well. Remove from heat.
  10. Pour soup into serving bowls.
  11. Prepare a piping bag fitted with a small round nozzle. Fill bag with sour cream.
  12. Carefully pipe sour cream over warm soup in a round spiral covering the whole top of the soup. Take a tooth pick or wooden skewer and gently draw from the middle out to the edge spiral line, creating a web effect around the entire piped spiral. Repeat with remaining soup servings, filling piping bag with more sour cream when needed.
  13. Serve and enjoy!
