Pumpkin Soup 


soupe a la citrouille.


An excellent pumpkin soup for this cold weather and for halloween. A tasty way to use the flesh from your halloween lanterns. For more recipes, why not try my pumpkin pie (Recipe here) or Turkish pumpkin dessert (Recipe here). When pumpkin is out of season use butternut squash instead.


soupe de citrouille



1kg pumpkin

1 onion

1 garlic clove

1l vegetable stock

1/2 tsp ground ginger

1 tbsp lemon juice

 1 bay leaf

300ml milk

2 tbsp butter

Salt and pepper

Fresh chives

Halloween pumpkin soup




Peel the pumpkin, remove the seeds and cut the flesh into cubes.

Melt the butter in a large pan. Add the onion and garlic and fry over a low heat until soft.

Add the pumpkin and toss with the onion for 2 min.

Add the stock and bring to the boil over a medium heat.

Season to taste.

Cover the pan and gently simmer for about 20 min or until the pumpkin is tender.

Blend in a food processor until smooth.

Add the milk and reheat gently.

Garnish with cream and chives.
