1. Preheat your oven to 220°C/ Gas 7.
2. Carve the top off the squash/ pumpkin. Scoop out the seeds. Carve out the flesh inside. Scoop it out with a spoon.
3. Roughly chop the flesh. Mix with the pear. Season. Toss on a baking tray, with the pumpkin/squash and garlic. Gloss with olive oil. Tuck in some rosemary/thyme sprigs. Roast for 1hr or till the pumpkin is golden and tender, check throughout cooking.
4. Once tender, whizz the flesh with the stock, slowly trickling it in till it’s as you like. Finish with a little cream, mascarpone or crème fraîche, if you like. Grate in some fresh ginger, to taste. Adjust salt/pepper levels, if needed. Serve with a little extra cream and the walnuts.
