Total Time 4 hours 30 minutes


  • 1tbs olive oil
  • 1tsp butter
  • 2 large onions, peeled & chopped
  • 3 chorizo sausages, peeled & chopped
  • 200g triple smoked ham, chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled & chopped
  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled & chopped
  • 1 extra large butternut pumpkin, peeled & chopped
  • 1tsp smoked paprika
  • 1tsp curry powder
  • 1/4tsp cumin
  • 5cups (1250ml) chicken stock
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Heat oil and butter in a large fry pan. Fry onion, chorizo and ham until everything is golden.
  • Drain off excess oil and place mixture into slow cooker.
  • Add all remaining ingredients into slow cooker, mix well and cook on high for 4hrs.
  • Process soup in batches in a blender or use a hand blender while still in slow cooker.
  • Serve with a dollop of natural yoghurt and some crusty bread, or for a more filling meal, with some tortellini!!
  • Note:
  • Adjust amount of spice to your liking.
  • You could just through all the ingredients into the slow cooker without cooking the onion, chorizo and ham first. I find it adds more depth of flavour if you do.
  • These quantities filled my 6L slow cooker right to the top!!
