Preheat oven to 180C/350 F/gas mark 4.
Place the diced pumpkin in a bowl with the oil, chilli, cinnamon, crushed garlic and thyme. Mix well.
Put the mix onto a large piece of tin foil and wrap up to make a parcel. Place in the oven for 40 minutes, until the pumpkin is soft.
Empty the parcel into a food processor and blend until smooth.
Heat the chicken stock in a pan, then add to the blender a bit at a time, stopping when the desired consistency is reached.
