  • 2 onions 
  • 1,2 kg winter- or butternut squash 
  • 60 ml olive oil 
  • 1 L vegetable stock 
  • 2 tbsp harissa 
  • ¼ tsp saffron threads 
  • 1 tsp orange zest 
  • 180 gr crème fraiche 
  • 5 gr coriander leaves 
  • salt & black pepper 

  • 80 gr pumpkin seeds 
  • 2 tsp maply syrup 
  • ¼ tsp chili flakes 
Step 1: Light a fire in the Outdooroven. Mix the pumpkin seeds, maple syrup and chili flakes with ¼ teaspoon of salt in a small bowl. Once the Outdooroven has reached a temperature of around 170 degrees; spread the mixture onto a baking tray and roast for around 15 minutes. The seeds should swell and brown. Let them cool down. Break into smaller pieces once cooled down.  

Step 2: In the meantime, keep the fire up until the oven reaches a temperature of around 220 degrees.  

Step 3: Peel and cut the onions in parts of around 2-3 cm. Peel the pumpkin, cut it in half and remove the seeds. Cut the pumpkin flesh into cubes of 3 cm.
Step 4: Place the olive oil, onion and pumpkin into a large bowl. Add ¾ teaspoon of salt and be generous with the black pepper. Mix everything and then place onto a baking tray covered with baking paper. Roast in the oven for 25 minutes until everything is cooked and caramelized. Take out of the oven and place to the side. 

Step 5: Add the vegetable stock to a large pan, together with the harissa, saffron threads, orange zest, ½ teaspoon of salt and a freshly ground pepper. Bring to a boil and add the roasted pumpkin and onions. Stir well and let the soup boil for 5 minutes at medium fire. 

Step 6: Take the pan off the heat, add the crème fraiche and puree the soup. Serve with the roasted pumpkin seeds and coriander leaves on top.
