Easy Pumpkin Soup May 19 2013
Nothing is more warning or nourishing in winter than Pumpkin Soup. I am not a flash cook. I just eat what is good for me, if I can make it taste good on the way, it is a major bonus!
My pumpkin soup consists of:
. Pumpkin, roughly cut, with the skin on (the water soluble fibre is in the skin);
. One large brown onion;
. 2-3 cloves of garlic;
. Peppercorns (as many as you can handle).
Place in pot on stove with stock or water and boil til tender.
Drain pumpkin and keep stock.
Place some pumpkin and a couple of ladles of stock in a food processor, whiz up til smooth and return to pot. Continue doing this til all pumpkin is puréed. Depending on how thick you want your soup you can mix in a bit more stock.
Freeze remaining stock for next time.
Serve with sour cream or natural low fat yoghurt!!!
