Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large brown onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1kg butternut pumpkin, peeled and chopped
  • 500g Pohlmans Sebago potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 litre chicken stock
  • 1/3 cup sour cream

Method

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium to high heat. Add onion and garlic and cook for three minutes or until onion has softened. Add the pumpkin and potato, cook for five minutes, stirring as you go.
