Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees celcius. Put butternut on a greased baking tray and lightly brush with half olive oil. Bake for 20 minutes, or until softened and slightly browned around edges. Heat remaining oil in a large saucepan. Cook onion and cumin for 2 minutes, then add carrots and celery and cook for a further 3 minutes, stirring frequently.

Add roasted butternut and stock. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Allow to cool a little before puréeing in a blender or food processor. Return soup to pan and gently re-heat, without boiling. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Top with cream, and sprinkle with parsley and black pepper. Serve with rolls or bread.
