There's lots of ways to make pumpkin soup.. Here's one I KNOW is yummy!
What you'll need:
1 tbsp oil
1/2 a pumpkin chopped
1 onion chopped
3-4 cloves of garlic (or 2 dessert spoons of bottled crushed garlic)
2 cups chicken stock
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
1 tub sour cream
1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander
-- optional -- bacon diced
How to do what I did:
In a deep saucepan, fry off onion, garlic, optional bacon and pumpkin.
Add cumin, salt and pepper.
Add stock and bring to the boil.
Simmer until pumpkin is mushy.
Add sour cream and coriander and whizz with a barmix or something similar until velvety smooth.
Serve with crusty bread...
You can use light sour cream for a reasonably healthy option, and cut out the bread for the carb conscious.
Enjoy! A. xo
