Method

30 minutes
 
Place the pumpkin, cherry tomatoes and thyme sprigs on a baking tray. Drizzle with half the olive oil and sprinkle salt and pepper over before mixing up to coat all the vegetables. Roast in a pre-heated oven at 200°C for about 30 minutes. Give the tray a shake every now and then. When done, discard the thyme sprigs.

 Heat the remaining oil in a saucepan. Fry the leeks with the thyme leaves until soft. Add the pumpkin, tomatoes and stock and simmer over a low heat for about 15 minutes. Blend the soup with a hand blender. If you don’t like chunky bits or tomato seeds in your soup, pass it through a sieve before serving. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.

Serve with fresh bread.
