Here is What You Need (serves four)
1. Half a pumpkin
|Steaming - typically 20minutes|
2. One carrot and One Onion, cut out and placed into a blender. Shred to smooth consistency
|Don't like onion? no problem, just don't use it!|
Once the pumpkin is soft, drop them into the blender and mash them up. Then, you put everything into a pot and add in a cup of water while heating all of it up. Stir the mixture constantly to prevent the bottom from burning up (so use medium heat) and to give the whole content a good mix. Adjust the consistency based on your liking. We like our soup thick and with texture and a cup of water does more than it should - remember, the pumpkin, carrot and onion has liquid too!
Once the mixture starts to bubble, switch off the gas and it is ready to serve!
|Ooooo...I am hungry now!|
|Anyone wants a bite?|
Estimated calories per serving (or about 250ml or a cup) is about 400kcal. I will not be too worry about the carb-protein-fat breakdown as there is no other ingredient involved other than the three simple items you can walk into any supermarket and buy off the shelves.
Perfect timing for the month of October. My husband and I can buy extra pumpkin while shopping for pumpkins for our kids to carve. We'll tell the kids we made the soup out of the pumpkin that was laying outside.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the detailed post. We love cooking meals that can be reheated the next day. It saves a lot of time while keeping the quality intact.
Awesome Snorkel Jane! We keep a serving or two for those time where we do not have the luxury of time (or food) for a full meal. :)Delete
