Here’s the best pumpkin recipe – the original pumpkin soup.

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium pumpkin
  • head of onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 50 g butter
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika,
  • nutmeg on the tip of a knife
  • 40 ml sherry
  • 200 ml cream
  • 0.5 l of vegetable broth

Soup dressing

  • 100 g pumpkin seeds
  • 100 g onions
  • 0.5 tsp of starch
  • any croutons
  • 2 tbsp. tablespoons of butter
  • 200 g cherry tomatoes
  • 6 tbsp. spoons of parmesan

Cooking instructions:

  • Wash and dry the pumpkin, cut off the top and remove the seeds first, and then all the pulp. Rinse and dry the seeds. We use part of the seeds in this dish, and I leave the other part for future use.
  • Melt the butter and sauté the onion and garlic. Then add pieces of pumpkin and nutmeg, salt and pepper, pour in sherry (you don’t have to add), vegetable broth, and simmer everything for 20 minutes.
  • After the time has elapsed, beat the mixture with a blender to make a puree and add the cream. The fat content of my cream is 20%.
  • Roast the pumpkin seeds lightly. Dip the chopped onion in the starch mixture and fry in oil. And put it all in the ready-made puree soup.
  • I usually made the croutons for this pureed soup myself (see the recipe here), but this time l took ready-made ones with bacon flavor. And you know l liked it. With different flavors of croutons, you will get a different taste of this of dish every time. This is amazing!
  • I had a beautiful idea for serving this soup. You can pour the soup into the pumpkin and decorate the edges of the pumpkin beautifully. It seems to me it will look very nice.

Serve the cherry tomatoes and parmesan separately on a platter.

Advice:

  • Put the croutons in the soup last, so that they do not become soft, but retain their wonderful crunch.
  • You can adjust the thickness of the soup yourself. Do this with broth or cream, or add a little more pumpkin.

We’d love to hear from you with ideas for serving this wonderful soup.

Bon Appetit!
