Super Creamy Spicy Easy Pumpkin Soup

Hello again!

It’s getting very cold now that winter is progressing so I thought I’d bring you this one! This recipe is a no brainer and cannot go wrong, it can be a little spicy due to the curry powder but once milk and cream is added it really takes off the edge. A hearty, creamy and relatively healthy Pumpkin soup requires hardly any attention with this easy recipe.

Ingredients:

1/2 a butternut pumpkin

2 large potatos

1 large brown onion

3 teaspoons of olive oil

2 teaspoons of curry powder

500mL of reduced salt chicken stock

1 1/2 teaspoons of salt

100mL of milk

light sour cream to serve

Method:

  1. Peel the pumpkin and the potatoes, then chop them roughly into 3cm cubes.IMG_2539
  2. Finely dice the onion and set aside in a separate bowl. IMG_2538
  3. In a large saucepan heat the oil and fry the onion until it is transparent, add the curry powder and fry for 2 minutes. (during this stage feel free to deglaze the pan with some water because curry powder really sticks)

   4. Add the potato and pumpkin and fry for a further 3 minutes before adding the stock and salt. Bring to the boil then simmer while covered for 30-40 minutes
