Winter-Spiced Pumpkin

Credit: Chris Shoebridge - GenV


  • 1 medium onion, peeled and finely diced
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 700g pumpkin flesh (or butternut squash), cut into 2.5cm chunks
  • Thumb-sized piece of ginger, grated
  • ½ tsp dried chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp red miso
  • 200ml vegetable stock


  1. In a large pan, fry the onion in the oil until soft – about 8 minutes.
  2. Add the diced pumpkin, ginger, chilli, and miso, and mix well.
  3. Pour in the stock, cover with a lid, and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and let simmer for 15 minutes or until the pumpkin is soft. Stir every now and then to prevent sticking.
