Satisfaction guaranteed! There is no doubt about anybody not liking the Roman Style Pumpkin Soup, because it transforms the humble pumpkin into nothing short of a sumptuous delicacy. This cream soup, made with vitamin A and calcium rich pumpkin and calcium rich low-fat milk is very appealing in terms of colours and flavours. Red pumpkin when blended with milk and potatoes give thickness to the soup, so there is no need to add any cream to this soup.
- Heat the butter in a deep non-stick pan, add the garlic and onions and sauté on a medium flame for 1 minute.
- Add the pumpkin and potatoes and sauté on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes.
- Add the milk and 1 cup of hot water, mix well and cook on a medium flamefor 5 to 7 minutes, till the potatoes and the pumpkin get cooked, while stirring occasionally.
- Allow the mixture to cool completely and blend in a mixer to a smooth purée.
- Transfer the purée back to the pan, add the thyme, salt, pepper and 1½ cups of hot water, mix well and bring to a boil.
- Serve hot garnished with a sprig of mint.
