  • Serves 2


1 tbsp Barnes Naturals Active Manuka Honey (lower strength's are more suitable)
½ tbsp Olive oil
500g Kent or butternut pumpkin, peeled, deseeded and cut into even pieces
1 large carrot, peeled and chopped into thirds
½ brown onion, quartered
1 tsp turmeric paste, or 2cm fresh turmeric
1.5cm piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
500ml bone broth
2 sprigs continental parsley sprigs, to serve
2 tsp Dukkah, to serve
2 tbsp plain yoghurt, to serve


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Toss pumpkin, carrot and onion in olive oil until coated and season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a large lined baking tray ensuring the items are in one even layer. Roast for 35-45 minutes until the pumpkin and carrot are soft and caramelised at the edges.
  2. Transfer the roasted vegetables to a soup pot and add Oli-K8 Honey, turmeric, ginger and sage leaves. Top with chicken stock ensuring the vegetables are completely covered (if not add boiling water until they are).
  3. Place pot on medium heat and stir the mixture until the honey has dissolved and the liquid has begun simmering. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes. Blend into a soup.
  4. Divide between two bowls and top with a swirl of yoghurt, Dukkah and continental parsley sprigs.
