I Did It My Way.....Pumpkin Soup

Heavy Cream Before Blending It Into The Pumpkin Soup
Everybody says Pumpkin Soup is delicious and easy to make. I had about 2,5 kg of pumpkin left over from the holidays so I decided to use it all to make this famous Pumpkin Soup everybody is talking about....

Ingredients:

  • 2 kg pure pumpkin cut in cubes large or small.

  • 1/4 cup olive oil.
  • 2 cups chopped leek.
  • Two cubes of chicken broth.
  • 1 litre boiling hot water with the two cubes dissolved in it.
  • 50 ml of cream.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Some chopped parsley for colour and garnish.
Method:
  • Cut, peel and chop pumpkin to end up with 2 kg.
  • Use a large pot, heat the oil to stir fry the leek till it is completely soft.
  • Add the pumpkin stirring every now and then. The pot should be covered to help the pumpkin cook faster.  

  • When soft, add the boiling broth, stir a couple of times cover again and let cook till the pumpkin is completely soft.
  • At this point use the vertical hand held blender to render the pumpkin completely fluid with no lumps in it.

  • Add the cream and stir till absorbed.

  • Add the parsley and serve hot.
  • It will be thickish and very gratifying. 
I found it delicious so did my family. If you follow my steps exactly you will also enjoy it when it is cold.
Enjoy
