    Over low heat, cook onion and garlic together for 15 minutes to soften. Keep the heat low; you want to soften and start to bring out the sweetness, rather than fry it.

  2. At the same time as the onion is cooking, in separate pan cook the quinoa according to instructions upon the packed. When fully cooked, remove from heat.

  3. Pour the chicken stock into the pan with the onion, then add the pumpkin, sate sauce and tomato purée, and allow to simmer on low heat for 5 minutes.

  4. OPTIONAL: If you want a smooth soup, remove from the heat and using a food processor or hand blender, cream soup until smooth, then return to heat. I missed this step out as I like the slight bite that the onion gives.

  5. Small 14

    Stir in the cooked quinoa, and add the cinnamon, chilli powder, paprika and turmeric. Season with salt and black pepper.

    Simmer for 5-8 minutes, then remove from heat and allow to sit for 3 minutes before serving.
