My family loves pumpkin soup in winter! Yesterday they had some for lunch (I had made a big batch on Thurs night) & this was the final result. It got EVERYWHERE. (I was feeling sick, so I left them to eat it by themselves - silly me!)
Here is my pumpkin soup recipe. It is the yummiest ever (no I'm not biased LOL). It is adapted from my friend Nat's, but I have changed it.
Ing: 3/4 pumpkin; 2 potatoes; 1/2 large sweet potato; 2 onions; 1 carrot; 4 rashers bacon; chicken stock powder; 250 mls cream; salt & pepper;
Method: * Cut up all vegetables & bacon & put into large saucepan. Add water & boil with 1 tsp chicken stock til soft.
* Blend up until nice consistency (if you want it thick drain away some of the liquid before blending -this is how I like it). Add cream. Add salt & pepper & chicken stock powder to taste. Enjoy!
To change the taste you can use sour cream in place of the cream or even natural yoghurt for a low fat variety!
Easy as that & definitely a family favourite here!
