If you happen to be interested in healthy foods, this time we’ve got something exactly for you. I have recently become very interested in various dishes which have got pumpkin in it. Pumpkin is not only used for Halloween to make giant pumpkin-candle decorations. Pumpkin is a low-calorie vegetable widely used in food industry. Pumpkin pie, for example, is a traditional part in American Thanksgiving event and, I must admit, after having tried various meals with pumpkin, I would be more than happy to share some with you. This time we are tasting a simple and very tasty pumpkin soup, which is perfect for those who are interesting in having a balanced, healthy diet.
- 1kg pumpkin
- 2 potatoes
- 1 large onion
- around 1-2 liters of vegetable stock
- creme fraiche or milk
- a little bit of oil
- spring onions and/or croutons
Cut vegetables in small pieces and stir-fry in an oily pan for about 5-7 minutes. Boil the vegetable stock and, as soon as vegetables in a frying pan start getting soft, put them in a bowl with vegetable stock. Add salt, pepper and muscat, let it boil for about 20 minutes. If you see that there’s too much water, take some water out. The soup has to be viscous. Then, add creme fraiche or milk. Cut the soup with the blender until even. If needed, add some more milk. Serve with pieces of fresh spring onion and/or croutons. Enjoy!
