Spiced Butternut Squash Soup with Toasted Pumpkin Seeds and Cumin Oil

The natural sweetness of butternut squash lends itself to pairing beautifully with a little bit of spice. In this recipe we use ras el hanout and chili to add some depth to the soup and finish with a toasted pumpkin and cumin oil for textural contrast and little pockets of flavour.
