Season with pepper to taste

720ml water

Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil then add the pumpkin and vegeatble stock and cook on low for around 30-60 minutes or until the pumpkin is tender.

Remove soup from heat and puree in a food processor or blender adding in the salt and the nutmeg.

Be careful not to overload the blender or food processor, you may need to do this in batches.
