She started by cutting the pumpkin in half, and scooping out the seeds.

On a baking tray lined with baking paper, she placed the pumpkin and onions with skin on, cut sides up and a garlic bulb, unpeeled, followed by a drizzle of olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper.

Donna roasted the vegetables for one hour, or until pumpkin has cooked through, and onions are caramelised.

Next she scooped the pumpkin flesh out and placed into a large pot. Donna removed the onions and garlic from their skins and added to the pot.

She covered the roast vegetables with chicken stock and water. 

Using a hand blender, she blended the ingredients until smooth. Over high heat, she brought the soup to boil. Donna served the soup with tahini, which can be substituted for cream.

Her video has since been viewed more than 250,000 times, with many home cooks saying it’s their favourite soup from Donna Hay to make every winter.
