Cut pumpkin in half, length ways, remove seeds.
Place cut side down on a baking tray, add around a cm of water to the baking tray, bake in a 180 Deg oven for around 40 min. I put it in the oven set the timer for 40 min then go to bed, in the morning I continue with the soup.
Allow pumpkin to cool, remove skin.
In a med saucepan heat oil over med to high heat.
Add onion and cook for around 5 min. Add spices cook for around a min, stir so the spices don’t burn.
