Heat the olive oil or substitute in a large pan & add onion & cook for 5 minutes then add the pumpkin & carry on cooking for a further 10 minutes. Add stock then bring to a slow boil, simmer for ten minutes until the pumpkin is soft. Add cream or your chosen substitute & marinade then using a blender, purée til there are no lumps. If needed, season to taste.
For the croutons heat oil in frying pan, add garlic, salt, pepper & coriander then add the bread ... fry until crisp. I used seeded wholemeal & it was delicious!
Cost of marinade per serving 11p & good to freeze.
