Mise en place

  • Heat your oven to 220° C (425° F - gas 7), [fan oven 200° C & reduce cooking time by 10 mins per hour]

Method

  1. Carve the top off the squash/ pumpkin. Scoop out the seeds. Carve out the flesh inside. Scoop it out with a spoon.
  2. Roughly chop the flesh. Mix with the pear. Season. Toss on a baking tray, with the pumpkin/squash and garlic. Gloss with olive oil. Tuck in some rosemary/thyme sprigs. Roast for 1hr or till the pumpkin is golden and tender, check throughout cooking.
  3. Once tender, whizz the flesh with the stock, slowly trickling it in till it’s as you like. Finish with a little cream, mascarpone or crème fraîche, if you like. Grate in some fresh ginger, to taste. Adjust salt/pepper levels, if needed.


Serving suggestion

Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
