The most tender pumpkin soup ever! Try it once and you’ll cook it for many times for sure! The ingredients are quite simple and cooking is easy.
- 4 slices of pumpkin, palm-sized pieces
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 4 tablespoons olive oil, extra virgin
- 1 cup of water
- Salt as needed
- 1/8 cup fresh lime juice
- 1 tablespoon sugar
Peel pumpkin patches. Shave clean inside a little, wash and chop into pieces. Heat olive oil in a pot on medium heat, add the chopped onion and garlic, saute (no need to fry up golden), once onions are translucent, add pumkin pieces keep frying till flavored. Add water and salt, bring it to a boil. Lower the heat, let it simmer untill tender.
Mix lime juice and sugar, add to the pot, this syrup makes much difference in the taste. A small change in the proportions of lemon juice and sugar will have a dramatic effect on the taste. After simmering there should be a little or no water in the pot. Soup is ready. With a hand blender or masher or the back of a spoon, mix the content well untill smooth and uniform.
If the soup is too thick, add a little boiling water and stir over heat. If it is slightly thin, stir over medium heat until your desired consistency. Ladle into serving dish. Enjoy.
I garnished it with a piece of dried savory.
