Pumpkin or Squash?!

CLASSIC PUMPKIN SOUP – FAST & EASY

Especially in winter, there’s nothing better than dunking crusty bread into a big bowl of creamy pumpkin soup (but with no cream in it!). The way I make it, it’s darn tasty and just 4 steps – a bit of chopping, plop 5 ingredients into a pot, simmer until cooked, then whizz into a soup. It’s that easy.

Pop this in your RecipeTin app so you can whizz this up and get it on the table in 15 minutes!

Especially in winter, there’s nothing better than dunking crusty bread into a big bowl of creamy pumpkin soup. This recipe is ridiculously easy, and if you have a stick blender it’s a one-pot-wonder.
Author: Nagi | RecipeTin Eats
Recipe type: Soup
Serves: 4 – 6
INGREDIENTS
  • 2lb/1 kg pumpkin (any), chopped into large chunks (remove skin and seeds)
  • 2 medium onions, sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 3 cups / 750ml chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 cup / 250ml milk (see notes for vegan subs)
  • Salt and pepper
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Combine all ingredients (except salt and pepper) in a saucepan and bring to boil, then reduce heat and let simmer until pumpkin is tender.
  2. Remove from heat and use a stick blender to blend until smooth. If you don’t have a stick blender, use a blender – see notes.
  3. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then serve with crusty bread.
  4. Variations: For a richer finish, substitute the milk with cream, but add after blending and do not bring to boil.
  5. Garnishes: Dollop of yoghurt, sour cream or creme fraiche goes wonderfully.
NOTES
1. To make it vegan, substitute with almond or soy milk.
2. If you don’t have a stick blender, you can use a blender BUT you must make sure that the soup is cooled slightly before blending it, otherwise you will find out the hard way that hot soup + blender = soup explosion (literally, the lid will blow off the blender when you start blending it).

This would be great if the Crown Prince squash was cooked in oven for 15 mins first … Or use up roast veg
