1 kg Kent Pumpkin, peeled and cut into 1cm pieces
800g carrots, peeled and cut into 1cm pieces
2 Tbs olive oil
2 Tbs garlic infused olive oil
1 Tbs mustard seeds
2 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground turmeric
½ tsp ground cardamom
¼ tsp chilli powder (optional)
1L Low FODMAP stock (chicken or vegetable depending on preference)
Preheat oven to 210c. Place cut pumpkin and carrot on a lined tray and drizzle over 1 Tbs of the garlic oil and 1 Tbs of the olive oil. Toss to coat. Place in the oven for 30-35 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat the remaining oils in a pot over medium heat. Add the mustard seeds and spices, cook stirring for a couple of minutes or until aromatic and the mustard seeds pop.
Add the roasted carrot and pumpkin to the pot along with the stock and the water. Increase heat to medium, cover and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and cook covered for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, uncover and leave to cool slightly for 15 minutes
Transfer half of the mixture to a jug and blitz with a stick mixer, repeat with the remaining pumpkin mixture.
This soup freezes really well, double the mixture and freeze for a great low FODMAP portable meal.
Serve with natural yoghurt (lactose free if required)
