|As the temperature drops and the squash harvest comes in, this squash - or pumpkin - and split fava bean soup is a comforting and seasonal delight. The simple but excellent recipe was developed by Carol Kearns, who not only creates the lovely illustrations for our packaging but also publishes recipes on her blog The Art of Baking.|
This soup is wonderfully comforting at this time of year: it has a lovely velvet texture, a brilliant colour and roasting the squash brings out a real intensity of flavour. Indeed, don’t be tempted to add any herbs or spices to the recipe because, simple as this soup is, it’s just packed with flavour.
As the soup only requires half a standard-sized squash I either double the quantities in the recipe so I have some for the freezer or, alternatively, I use the other half in a warming spicy bean stew recipe - made with Hodmedod’s pulses of course. Look out for that recipe shortly…

This easy and versatile dish makes the most of seasonal fruit for a superb late summer dessert - or even a whole meal! It's especially lovely made with little yellow mirabelle plums, which have a wonderful honeydew sweetness.
