I remember the first time I tasted Pumpkin Soup.
It was in Jamaica.
the waiter was asked
what is this delicious soup.
"Pumpkin" he replied.
Yesterday running errands
one of them having car serviced.
I stopped at the local tea room
for a carry out.
Pumpkin soup, cheddar and mushroom quiche
and a slice of pumpkin cake.
Oh, the soup brought back memories.
It will be made weekly in this cottage.
I make pumpkin bread regularly - adding cranberries to it
and also pumpkin pie - but
how could I have forgotten about this delicious and healthy soup.
My recipe is simple
1 can of pumpkin puree
clove of garlic chopped
chicken broth or cream to the consistency that you like
I use cream :)
I simmer the onion, celery and garlic in olive oil until transparent
take 1/2 of pumpkin puree and blend a few minutes
and then add to rest of pumpkin
add cream and simmer
I top with some of my herbs.
