Pumpkin soup is a heartwarming, beautiful, creamy, full-flavoured soup. The natural flavour of pumpkin is delicious enough that not much of other ingredients are required. Few recipes should be kept as simple as nature intended them to be, and Pumpkin Soup is exactly one of those dishes. As a bonus pumpkin turns out to be a healthy vegetable as well.
Take ½ cup chopped pumpkin, boil and mash it into a puree. Keep aside.
Heat 1/2 tbsp butter in a frying pan at a low flame, add 1/4 cup chopped onion and sauté.
Once the onions start to become transparent, add 1/2 tsp chopped garlic, ½ cup of previously mashed pumpkin, mix properly and then add water.
Stir in 1 tbsp cream and allow it to cook.
Once the soup starts to simmer, add 1/4th tsp salt along with 1/4th tsp black pepper, mix properly and cook for a few minutes.
Take off the flame, pour in a blender and blend to obtain a soup like consistency.
Garnish with cream.
