Hello to all autumn and halloween friends,
shortly before the scary feast, today a pumpkin bites the dust in my kitchen. The plan is a delicious, creamy pumpkin soup. It does particularly well when it becomes colder and colder outside colder and dark early. Here I want to try the program “soup” on the Multicooker today.
The pumpkin soup is some more effort than my last recipes. This is mainly due to the recalcitrant pumpkin. It must be peeled first and then chopped into about 2 cm small pieces. The seeds need to be removed.
Afterwards now chopping the shallot appears as a child’s play now. I roast the shallot with a little oil in the PowerCook on the program “fry”. The device tells me again when it is hot enough. Then I add the pumpkin cubes and pour the broth. Time for the “soup” program, half an hour should be enough. The spices come right at that: a little salt, pepper and a good dose of cumin, curry powder and ginger. Moreover the sopu needs a spoonful of sugar. One or two small chopped chillis give the soup later a pleasant spicy taste. But now the soup should simmer on its own for some time.
By the way: many other recipes for pumpkin soups additionally contain potatoes and carrots, for instance. I rather keep my hands off this ingredients, because thereby the soup is only stretched and without these components
Of this I prefer to let their fingers, because as the soup is only stretched and without these ingredients in the end the pure, not particularly dominant pumpkin flavor remains that makes the soup only so delicious.
After the cooking time is over, the pumpkin pieces are nicely soft. With the blender the whole becomes a viscid mass. So it also will be creamy, I taste them with cream and some more seasoning – done! Noone can any longer resist to the good smell an my testers are happy about the successful goodie.
The soup tastes best with a little fresh bread.
