Pumpkin Soups – You will need

Get yourselves down to Asda for this one:

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 red onion (chopped)
3 garlic cloves, crushed – that’ll keep the vampires away
2 (300g) golden delight potatoes, peeled, chopped
1kg butternut pumpkin peeled, chopped
1/4 teaspoon dried chilli flakes (add more for a little more heat)
2 teaspoons ground coriander
1 Nor chicken style liquid stock
1/2 cup pure cream
Pure cream to serve
Chopped fresh chives to serve
Toast

Pumpkin Soup – The Steps

Sounds quite a bit for some pumpkin soup, but bear with us the steps are as easy as 1 2 3

Step 1: 

Heat oil in the saucepan over a medium to high heat.

Chuck in the garlic and onion.  Cook these bad boys for around 3 minutes, don’t forget to stir until the onion has softened.

Add potato and pumpkin, cook for a further 5 minutes or until the potato starts to brown.

Add a spot of chilli and coriander, cook for a further minute or until fragrant, add more if required.

Step 2

Get the stock in the pan and bring it to the boil.

Reduce the heat to a medium-low heat and allow to simmer for 10-12 minutes or until potato and pumpkin are tender.

Set aside for 2 minutes to allow to cool

Step 3

Blend in batches until smooth.

Return to the pan, over a low hear, stir in the cream and cook for a further minute.

Season with pepper

Divid between below and top with cream.

Server with toast or some crusty bread.
