It’s autumn and we love it right? We love the leaves, we love pumpkin lattes and pumpkin spice, pumpkin all things everything!
So I have a really easy and quick pumpkin soup recipe!
What you’ll need:
- Splash of olive oil
- 1 chopped onion
- Half of a small pumpkin (chopped, deseeded and peeled) – let’s say about 500g
- 400ml chicken stock (or vegetable if you’re vegetarian)
- Double cream to serve
Heat some olive oil in a large saucepan, then gently cook the chopped onions until soft but not coloured. Add the pumpkin to the pan, then carry on cooking stirring occasionally until it starts to soften and turn golden.
Pour the stock into the pan, then season with salt, pepper and some smoked paprika. Bring everything to the boil, then simmer on a low fire until the pumpkin is very soft. Purée the ingredients in a blender and the most important part: push the soup through a fine sieve into another pan for a smooth consistancy!
Once you’re ready to serve, add a tablespoon of double cream! And taaaadaaah! Smooth delicious pumpkin soup!
Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it!
