Pumpkin Soup Recipe   

Prep: 20 mins | Cook: 25 mins | Serves: 6

Warm yourself up with this perfect autumnal starter packed full of delicious flavour.

2 tbsp olive oil

2 onions, finely chopped

1kg pumpkin, chopped into chunks

700ml vegetable stock or chicken stock

150ml double cream

1. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in the cooking bowl, then gently cook 2 finely chopped onions for 5 mins, until soft but not coloured.

2. Add 1kg pumpkin, cut into chunks, to the cooking bowl, then carry on cooking for 8 – 10 mins, stirring occasionally until it starts to soften and turn golden.

3. Pour 700ml vegetable or chicken stock into the cooking bowl and season with salt and pepper. Bring to the boil, and then simmer for 10 mins until the pumpkin is very soft.

4. Pour 150ml double cream into the cooking bowl and bring back to the boil. For an extra-velvety consistency you can pour the soup through a fine sieve before serving.

5. Finish with a swish of double cream on top – enjoy!


Smokey Spuds

Impress your guests with deliciously filled spuds. Why not bake in the Kadai Roasting Oven to add a funky twist!

1. Wash and pierce the potatoes using a fork.

2. Individually wrap them in tin foil and place in the Roasting Oven. Then, place the oven into the Kadai embers for 40 – 45 mins.

3. Cut open the potatoes with a knife to check doneness, they will be hot – so be careful. The skin should be soft and open up easily.

You can top the baked potatoes with sour cream, cheese, bacon, chives, butter – all sorts of different flavours. This isn’t really a recipe, more of a ‘how-to’ – enjoy! 


 Traditional S’mores

Finish off your barbecue feast with deliciously gooey melted s'mores. These sweet biscuit sandwiches are filled with oozy chocolate and marshmallow and are super quick and easy to make…

You will need: 

Graham crackers (alternative Rich Tea or digestive biscuits)

Chunks of milk chocolate


1. Cut out 4 squares of tin foil big enough to wrap the treats in. Put 1 biscuit on each piece of foil and top with 2 chunks of chocolate and a marshmallow. Place the other biscuit on top and wrap each parcel tightly. Insert the parcels onto the marshmallow tree’s branches. 

2. Put the s’mores over the Kadai and warm through for 2 mins on each side, so that the chocolate and marshmallows are just melted. Remove and allow cooling slightly before carefully peeling off the foil – Yummy!
