The instruction how to make Pumpkin soup with savoury granola topping
- To make the savoury granola, preheat oven to 180C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place the egg white, oats, pepitas, sunflower kernels, almonds, quinoa, chia seeds, sesame seeds, honey and cumin seeds in a medium bowl and toss to combine. Spoon oat mixture in a thin layer over the lined tray. Bake for 10-15 mins or until lightly toasted. Set aside to cool.
- Meanwhile, place the prosciutto on a baking tray. Bake for 5 mins or until crisp. Coarsely chop.
- Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until onion softens. Add the pumpkin, carrot and chicken stock. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 20 mins or until pumpkin and carrot are very tender.
- Place half the pumpkin mixture into a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a clean saucepan. Repeat with remaining pumpkin mixture. Heat over low heat. Season with salt and pepper.
- Divide the soup among serving bowls. Top with a dollop of cream and sprinkle with prosciutto, chives and granola.
