Method for the Pumpkin Soup

  1. Cut the pumpkin into cubes so it is easier and faster to cook. To cube it, first peel off the skin and remove the seeds. Cut the pumpkin into uniform strips and then chop them into cubes.
  2. Heat the butter in a deep non-stick pan.
  3. Once the butter melts, add the onions and sauté on a medium flame for 1 minute.
  4. Then add the pumpkin cubes and sauté on a medium flame for 3 minutes. Sautéing the pumpkin caramelizes it and gives the soup a more robust flavor. This recipe uses very less ingredients and relies on the flavor of pumpkin itself. This is because pumpkin is not only delicious but also has many health benefits. This is why Pumpkin is healthy. 
  5. Add 3 cups of hot water to the pan. This fastens the cooking process.
  6. Now add the salt.
  7. Finally add the black pepper as well and mix well. Even though we have added salt and pepper, there is still a slight pleasant sweetness to the soup.
  8. Cover with a lid and cook on a medium flame for 10 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Covering the food while cooking retains the nutrients. 
  9. Once cooked, it should look like this.
  10. You can check if the pumpkin is cooked by seeing how easily it breaks with a spoon. It should be soft.
  11. Remove from the flame and keep aside to cool completely.
  12. Once cooled, put the cubes and water in a mixer and blend in a mixer till smooth.
  13. Just before serving, transfer the mixture back into the same deep non-stick pan and add the oregano for an herby taste.
  14. Mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute or till it comes to a boil, while stirring continuously. This is a very crucial step for the soup. If boiled for longer or not stirred continuously, the soup might curdle.
  15. Serve immediately with Broken Wheat Salad with Chick Peas and Roasted Pepper to make a whole meal.
