Bianca’s Pumpkin Soup

Hey Shaine,

Nagkaron ako ng freetime sa work so naisip ko isulat yung recipe. Imbe imbento ko lang to, kaya feel free to modify it to your taste.

Okay, for the soup merong ‘Soup Base’ and ‘Extra Veges’. Yung soup base, essentials yun. Yung extra vegetables, kahit anung veges lang na meron ka para dag dag sustansya.

I always make this in bulk, kasi madali na i-freeze yung blended veges tapos initin pag tinatamad ako magluto. Tapos pag ininit ko, tsaka ko nalang siya nilalagyan ng flavour.

Here it is! Hope you enjoy. 😀

Ingredients:

Soup Base:
– 1 Whole Medium Pumpkin (about 10inch diameter)
– 1 Whole Celery (stems only)
– 2 Carrots
– 1 Parsnip
– 1 Medium Onion

Extra Vegetables for extra nutrients (add any of these veges you have on hand):
– Capsicum (Bell Pepper)
– Broccoli
– Cauliflower
– Potatoes
– Sweet Potatoes (Kiwis call it kumara)

Directions:
1. Cut up veges and place into a big pot. Fill with water and boil until vegetables are soft.
2. Drain veges. Keep water/vege stock in a separate bowl (you dont want to throw away nutrients dissolved in water!).
3. Let veges cool. Using hand blender / food processor, blend all veges together.
4. Once you’ve blended all the veges, you’ve created your soup pulp. Take the pulp you need for however many servings you’re making and put the rest in the freezer for future meals.
5. Add the vege stock you’ve put aside into the pulp and place on low heat.
6. Now it’s time to flavour your soup!
