Spiced Pumpkin Soup


Give this Classic Soup a Shake.. or should we say BAM! Bursting with Flavour, Nutrients and read to fill the hungriest of tummies!

This is the type of soup that is well balanced and can really be as potent as you want it to be. I love the way the flavours come together on your tastebuds; the tanginess from the Lime leaves that cut through the Tumeric and Ginger, whilst the Lemongrass gives it a depth to it that warms your body from the inside out. I have used Tumeric Paste in mine, you can easily grate or process your own in a food processor but I love the convenience of the packaged one. It contains only Tumeric and Filtered Water. No added nasties, fillers or preservatives…WINNING! I always end up staining something when I prepare Tumeric so this is a no stain guaranteed method!
– 1.2kg JapanesePumpkin
– 1 large Sweet Potato
– 2 Carrots
– 1 Shallot
– 3 Garlic cloves
– 2 Springs Lemon Grass
– 4 Lime Leaves
– 1 TBL Turmeric Paste
– 1 TSP Grated Ginger
– 1.5-2 Litres Of either Vegetable or Chicken Stock depending on what consistency you prefer! You may want even less if you like a really thick Soup!
I like to use homemade Broth but you can use store bought just check those ingredients!
– I Like to start by sautéing the the Shallot, Garlic, Lemongrass, Tumeric, Ginger and Lime Leaves all together in a touch of Olive Oil. Fry until the beautiful aroma’s start lifting, then you know to add the vegetables and stock! You can season if you like with Salt and Pepper in this step swell, bare in my mind the stock will have seasoning aswell.
– Bring to boil, then simmer gently for approx 30-45 min or until the vegetables are tender. Once cooked, remove the Lemon Grass Stalks and Lime Leaves and then blend until super smooth.

“Buon Appetito!”
