This week was halloween, and we had great fun carving our pumpkin. Nate enjoyed scooping out the seeds.

We didn't want to waste any of the pumpkin, so we promised Nate we'd make a soup. Nate chose the vegetables to go in the soup; carrots and parsnip. After carving our pumpkin and putting a candle inside it, Nate got a little scared of it, good time to make the soup.

In a pot we put the chopped up pumpkin and water with a stock cube we let that simmer for 10 minutes while we cut up the carrots and parsnip then in went the carrots again, letting them simmer for 10 minutes and for the final 10 minutes we put the parsnips in along with a teaspoon of turmeric, cumin and garam masala.

I then used the hand blender and plused it until smooth and served it with a sprig of coriander

Even the pumpkin seeds were roasted so none of our pumpkin went to waste. It was rather yummy so hopefully we'll be carving a pumpkin again next year.
