So apparently someone forgot to tell summer that it is summer time. I think I am starting to forget what the sun looks like! This morning Alex asked if we could have soup as he was cold. So soup for dinner it is!
There are plenty of good pumpkin soup receipes, mine is simple, but we like it ;)
2.5kg of pumpkin, (I like a mix of Butternut and Jap best, but whatever pumpkin you like is good)
2 medium onions, sliced
2 teaspoons of Curry Powder
1 teaspoon Brown Sugar
Chopped Garlic to taste
1ltr Chicken Stock
Skin your pumpkin and cut into chunks. Put into crockpot or big saucepan.
In small saucepan fry off onion until transparent, stir through curry powder, sugar and garlic and cook for another minute or two just to cook through the garlic.
Put onion mix into crockpot stir through with pumpkin, cover with chicken stock (you may not need a full litre) and set to cook.
Should take a few hours in the crockpot or an hour or so on the stovetop. Once the pumpkin is cooked through grab a stick blender or blender and whizz it all together. Serve hot!
I like to stir a small amount of sour cream through just prior to eating but Hubby likes a little grated cheese instead. The kids like both lol!
IF there should be any leftovers, it will last a few days in the fridge, jut heat what you need as you go, or it freezes well and is great to pull out of the freezer when you just don't feel like cooking ;)
