Easy Peasy Pumpkin Soup

Sleep better, boost vision, lower blood pressure, healthier heart! 
YES PLEASE!
This is a one pot simple soup full of goodness.

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1.2kg of pumpkin
  • 1 Onion 
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 3 cups of vegetable or chicken stock
  • 2 cups water
  • Salt and pepper to taste

METHOD

  • Dice up your pumpkin (skin off) into 3cm pieces
  • Slice onion - this will be blended in the end so doesn't matter too much about size
  • In a large pot place the pumpkin, onion, garlic cloves 
  • Pour over the top your 3 cups of stock along with the two cups of water.
  • Add salt and pepper - just remember you can always add more later!
  • The liquid wont quite cover the pumpkin, that's ok! 
  • Bring to the boil (lid off) then simmer away till pumpkin is nice and soft.
  • Take off the heat and give it a blend! Blend as much as you like, I prefer mine a little chunky. 
  • If you think your soup is a little too running just place it back on the heat (simmer) until thickens up! 

For more flavour add your favourite spice! Cumin, turmeric, curry powder.

To serve you can add a little cream, milk or just top with salt and pepper and a little parsley! Enjoy
