Pumpkin Soup has to be one of those recipes that you read twice. An orange vegetable in a soup!!! When its made, you will change your mind. The soup is tasty, colourful, filling and sure to be a hit with family and friends. Children love this soup as you can add yoghurt when served and write your name on top. When you open your larder and dig out a tin of mass produced processed soup, you will come looking for this recipe. It is so simple that even I can do it and make it a success.

Pumpkin Soup Tip:

Fry a few mushrooms and add to the soup when served for a superb additional flavour. I often serve this with Garlic and Goat Cheese – Crema Formaggio all’Olio as a light main course.

Ingredients
 

Instructions

  • Heat a large heavy casserole dish on the hob.
  • Add in a splash of olive oil, spread evenly in the dish and then add in the diced pumpkin.
  • Cover the dish and cook over a medium heat for 10–12 minutes, stirring now and then, until the pumpkin begins to break down.
  • Add the fresh carrot juice and the vegetable stock or cubes stirring until mixed.
  • Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes.
  • Stir in the grated Parmesan cheese and the double cream; these will enrich the soup, adding flavour and a smooth texture.
  • Bring back to the boil and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from direct heat.
  • Working in batches, transfer the pumpkin mixture to a jug blender and process each batch for 2 minutes until smooth. Alternately, use a hand blender to process the soup in batches until smooth.
  • For an extra smooth texture, the processed soup can then be passed through a fine sieve, using the back of a ladle to push it through.
  • Gently heat through the blended, sieved soup and serve with extra grated Parmesan on the side, seasoning it with a twist of freshly ground black pepper.
  • Add spoonful of cream for decoration
