Pumpkin Soup!


We had a pumpkin or two, and I thought soup sounded like a good idea!


You will need:

about 3 lbs of pumpkin, chopped

3 large onions

a couple of teaspoons of olive oil

half a tablespoon mild curry powder

3 pints of vegetable stock

a handful of fresh chopped coriander

salt and pepper to taste

...and added half a tablespoon of mild curry powder.  After stirring this in and frying it very gently for a couple of minutes, I added the chopped pumpkin and gave the while lot a good stir! curry.jpg (94228 bytes)

It takes about 15 minutes to cook.  You don't want it too soggy! cooked.jpg (75837 bytes)

We rinsed and saved the seeds for later.  This is two pumpkin's worth of seeds. savesseeds.JPG (179460 bytes)
