PUMPKIN SOUP RECIPE
  The weather here is totally changed and almost throughout the day it is raining and I am down with cough and cold for two days and didn’t go anywhere out. When my kids and husband went for vegetable shopping to the near by shop, my daughter picked up a piece of pumpkin and wanted to make something on halloween day , today. First i thought of making Muffins,but when i opened my fridge, i noticed that the butter was over. So i opted for pumpkin soup as it will  be comforting for my throat.

INGREDIENTS:

PUMPKINS(CHOPPED) 2 CUPS
ONION 1 NO
GARLIC 4-5 NO
SALT AS NEEDED
PEPPER POWDER 1/2 TSP
OLIVE OIL 1TSP
LOW FAT MILK 1/2 CUP

pumpkin soup
METHOD:

  • Peel the skin of the pumpkin and chop it roughly.

  • Chop the onions into cubes and peel the skin of the garlic.
  • In a pan, add oil and put the garlic and onions to this and saute for 2 mins in a medium flame.

  • Then add the roughly chopped pumpkins and saute for another 2 minutes.
  • Now add 1 and 1/2 cup of water and cook the onion and pumpkin till the pumpkin become tender. Check it with a fork, whether they are cooked or not.

  • The pumpkin gets cooked in 7-8 mins.
  • Allow this to cool. Keep the extra water aside and grind the cooked pumpkin mixture into a puree.
  • Now add the water which we kept aside and the milk to this.

Soupilicious! 🙂

Addition of oats is a wonderful idea! and so is the fork test for whether pumpkin is cooked or not!

This soup looks delicious. This is indeed a perfect food to eat to soothe your throat and chest. By the way, I'm sorry to hear about your cough and cold. You can actually make your own homemade flu remedies like ginger tea. Just add honey to neutralize the taste.

Jeyashri the soup looks delicious. Recently I happen to taste roasted peanut pumpkin soup. It was wonderful. So can I just add roasted and powdered peanut to this soup? please reply

Addition of peanut sounds interesting. You can add coarsely ground peanuts as it gives a crunchy taste.Nice idea
