Fresh or dried herbs (oregano, basil)
1/2 bunch spring onions
Pepper to taste

1. Roughly chop pumpkin, onion, carrot and garlic (peel skin off).
2. Drizzle olive oil and place in oven at 200 degrees. Allow to soften.
3. In a pot add 5 cups of water and stock.
4. Add tomato and capsicum in the hot water.
5. Once roasted vegetables have softened, add them in the pot.
6. Bring to the boil.
7. If looking for a smooth consistency, use a stick blender otherwise leave at desired consistency.
