Quick & Healthy Pumpkin Soup

Yes I have been a lazy mofo, started a new job and haven't posted anything in a while LOL....

Easy pumpkin soup that nearly anyone can make. Perfect for a cold night with some crusty sliced bread. Fresh, delicious and healthy, really can't go wrong with this classic!

  • Whole Pumpkin, about 1kg will do
  • 1x White Onion
  • 1x Cups of Chicken Stock
  • 1/2 Cup of Dry Cooking Wine
  • Tablespoon of Oil
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Some cream to serve (optional)

Roughly cube up the pumpkin and the onions as it will be blitz up later anyways. Add oil to pan, drop in onions and cook till translucent then add in the pumpkin. Add in stock, wine and simmer on low heat till the pumpkin softens up and thickens up. This should take a total of 15~20 minutes depending on the heat setting. I used a gas stove so it is a tad quicker. Once done, remove from heat and blitz it up using a stick bender or a normal bender. Don't over do it or else you will end up having baby food. Just give a quick light whiz and you should be fine. Serve with crusty bread in a deep plate and add a touch of cream for that kick!

Serves: 6~8, depending on serving size
Time: 30 minutes
Cost: < $10
