Pumpkin Soup

Mon Jul 05, 2010 2:12 pm

I have been given a whole pumpkin straight from the ground at my brothers farm and am looking for any pumpkin soup recipies. Not just the average one's something a bit better, maybe that is traditional to your family etc

Hi mine is really simple - but it was given to me by a cheif and I swear by it....

Finely chop the pumkin into 1 cm square portions...

Saute them in butter on a medium heat for 10 minutes (maybe with added leeks but not nessary)

then add 2-3 cups of water (depends on how much pumpkin you have) so you cover the pumkin... and cook it until the pumpkin is crumbly

Then blend...

Its very simple but just delicious!!

I make one with chilli flakes and coconut milk, so it had a lovely spicy thai flavour to it. Nom nom! I don't really have a recipe though, I just wing it! :lol:

I throw unmeasured amounts of pumpkin, potato (2-3), carrot(1-2), garlic(3 cloves), and onion (1 -2) in a pot with half chicken or vegie stock and the other half water. Cook untill mushy, depending on what else i have in the fridge, i have also added sweet potato before and it turned out yummy. Then blend, place back in the pot, add cream to taste (not if you want low fat :lol: )add a little bit of ground cummin (just a little or it will overpower). Sometimes it just needs a little something, so this can depend on if your pumpkin is sweet enough or not. If you think it could use a little more i often add a tsp or two of brown sugar...
Hope this helps,

I dont have a recipe either, I usually just wing it. I make it the same as my Grandma did though, and it's yummo.

I usually use a whole pumpkin, an onion and about about 4 potatoes. Chop it all up, and put it in a big pot, then cover with water, and add vegetable stock, salt and lots of pepper. Let it all simmer until it's all cooked down, then blend and stir in cream, and even sour cream is good.

My family usually devours a pot made from a 2 kilo pumpkin. So yummy.

Chop your pumpkin with the skin on, line on tray with garlic (skin intact), put into oven to roast. Scoup flesh from pumkin skin, remove skin from garlic. Fry up some chopped onion with butter until transparent. Add chicken stock/broth, season to taste. Wiz until smooth, add swirl of cream, chopped herbs etc. And that's how I like my pumpkin soup :D

Good thing about pumpkin soup is that you can add pretty much any other veg, herbs, spices, etc, you are only limited by your imagination.


I also roast my pumpkin..it adds great flavour!

This is my grandma's.....

One pumpkin chopped into small pieces
One Large onion chopped into small pieces
Beef stock cube
water
cream.

Cook the pumpkin in boiling water (only enough to cover the pumpkin) with the onion and the beef stock.

Cook until the pumpkin is soft. In a blender, blend all the pumpkin, onion and remaining pot water until smooth, return to pot and add cream to your desired thickness.

This is an awesome reciepe that is easy to make. It can be quite thick so instead of cream we use carnation milk 98% fat free for a lighter option and it tastes just as good!!!!
