Pumpkin Soup

This recipe has no specific ingredient quantities, but it is simple and works well. Based on the method of Frances Piquemal of Mortdale Ward.

Ingredients:
  • Pumpkin (Jap Pumpkin is best)
  • Butter
  • Onion
  • Stock Cubes
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Parmesan Cheese (optional)

    Method:
    Cube pumpkin and chop onions. Melt butter in a saucepan, and add onions. Stir together for a little while, then add cubed pumpkin. Stir well. Add stock cubes (perhaps 3 or 4), stir well, then close lid for a minute. Open and add enough water to cover the pumpkin. Cook slowly, stirring occasionally. You may need to add more water to thin the soup. When the pumpkin is tender (begins to break apart), remove from heat.

    If you have a handheld blender, use it to puree the soup. Otherwise, let it cool for a little while and puree it in a standard blender. Season to taste and serve. Garnish with parmesan if desired.

    Possible additions and variations:
  • Add garlic, thyme, sage, allspice, parsley, or a bay leaf.
  • Try using milk to thin the soup instead of additional water, or add thickened cream to make the soup richer.
  • Try olive oil instead of butter.
  • Add a teaspoon or two of sugar.
  • Make thinner soup, and add ravioli or other cooked pasta.

    LDS QUOTE:
    "You are a great army of returned missionaries. Go forward with new zeal and determination, and through your example shine the light of the gospel in this troubled world. This is the Lord's work in which we are engaged. God lives. Jesus is the Christ. We belong to His Church. This is my witness to you in the name of Jesus Christ, amen."
    - Elder L. Tom Perry
