Tasty Tuesday: Pumpkin soup.

Last Thursday, a few commenter's asked for my pumpkin soup recipe so I decided to post it.

My pumpkin soup is very similar to my broccoli soup recipe so you get a bonus recipe too. Two recipes, one post.

Pumpkin Soup:

Ingredients:

500 grms pumpkin diced.
500 grms potatoes diced.
1 litre vegetable stock.
300 mls sour cream.
chives.
salt and pepper to taste.

put pumpkin, potatoes and vegetable stock into a large saucepan.
Bring to the boil and simmer for 20-30 minutes.
When potato and pumpkin are soft, put in food processor with vegetable stock. Once soup is mixed, place back in saucepan and add sour cream, salt, pepper and chives. Heat through and serve.

I usually double this recipe for our family and it will have enough left over for me to have for lunch the next day.

Broccoli soup:

Ingredients.

500 grms broccoli.
125 grms spinach.
500 grms potato.
1 litre vegetable stock.
300 mls cream.

Place broccoli and potatoes into vegetable stock and bring to the boil. (I cut my potato up pretty small for this so that it cooks just as quickly as the broccoli does).
Simmer for 5-10 minutes so that the potatoes and broccoli are all cooked.
Add spinach and watch till it wilts.
place in food processor and mix. Put back in saucepan and add cream. Serve when heated through.

This recipe is usually doubled too.

I hope you all enjoy these wonderful winter soups.
