The most delicious..."Halloween" soup

작년

Halloween is almost here and carved pumpkins are the main symbol of this period. However since I live in Greece and Halloween is not a part of our tradition, I keep the pumpkins but I don't carve them... Instead I use them to make the easiest and most delicious pumpkin soup!

I love the sweet taste of pumpkins and if you love it too then you should try this recipe!

You will need

  • 500gr of pumpkin peeled and chopped into large chunks
  • 1 onion
  • 1 leek
  • 3 scallions
  • 1 small sweet potato
  • a thumb of ginger (grated)
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • salt
  • pepper

Method

Heat 2 tbsp butter in a large pot. Place the onion, leek, scallions and grated ginger and start stirring occasionally till they start to soften. Then add the pumpkin and continue stirring for another 3-5 minutes.

Add boiled water, the sweet potato chopped into chunks, salt and pepper. Boil for 10-15 minutes and then simmer for another 15-20 minutes till squash is very soft.

Adjust salt and pepper to taste and use a stick blender or transfer to blender to blitz smooth.

You can also add some yoghurt in your soup for more creaminess.
