Happy Soul Sunday everyone! It has been quite the week and I know you all are anxious for a little treat! One this gloomy cold day, how about a bowl of warm soup. Sounds toasty, am I right? In honor of it being the first Soul Sunday of October, how about a bowl of pumpkin soup. Tis the season… Here’s an easy recipe from the fabulous Daily Mail, all the way from the UK.
What you need:
- 1 tbs of Butter
- 1 Pumpkin, peeled, deseeded and chopped
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 large potato, peeled and chopped
- 1 large carrot, peeled and chopped
- 1 stick of celery, chopped
- 1¾pt vegetable stock
- double cream
- Chives to garnish
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
How to make it:
Over a medium heat, melt the butter in a large saucepan and add the vegetables, sweating them gently for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour in the stock and simmer gently until the vegetables are just cooked. Purée with an electric blender until smooth and return the vegetables to the saucepan. Add the double cream, warm gently and season the soup to taste. Ladle the soup into the pumpkin bowls, sprinkle with chives and serve.
… and there you go! Wasn’t that painless? Stay tuned every Sunday for more posts about food for the soul.
Have a wonderful week!
