  • Stir in the flour, nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin; cover and cook gently for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Pour in the chicken stock, orange juice and brown sugar.
  • Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes, until the pumpkin has softened.
  • Meanwhile, make the croutons.
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan, cut the whole wheat bread sliced into cubes and fry gently until just brown - add the sunflower seeds and fry for an additional 1 to 2 minutes; drain the croutons and sunflower seed on a papper towel.
