Winter Warmer - Pumpkin Soup
Its getting cold here and a friend of mine in Northern Queensland reports her husband needed the heater on yesterday.
So why not warm up with some healthy and tasty Pumpkin Soup.
My recipe is quick & easy.
Ingredients - Butternut Pumpkin, Chicken (or Vegetable Stock) - I use Powdered stock and add it to water.
Chop up the pumpkin and place in a saucepan with just enough stock to cover it if you like a thick pureed soup . If you prefer a chunky soup just add a little more stock.
Bring to the boil and simmer until pumpkin is soft.
To serve -
Chunky Soup - Serve with toast as is.
Allow soup to cool for a short time, then puree with a blender or stick mixer. Add stock according to desired consistency.
Serve with a little sour cream & chopped chives on top for extra flavour.
