What's For Dinner

Post by caskur on Wed Jun 28, 2017 8:39 am

Jngredients for the world's nicest cream of pumpkin soup and my recipe





1/2 a butternut pumpkin (or whole small butternut pumpkin) (leave skin on)

1 medium onion (peel and dice)

2-3 carrots (peel and chop)

1 medium potato (wash and leave skins on)

1 skinless and fatless chicken breast diced (optional).

Cut all those up in small pieces, add salt, and 1.2 litres of boiling water...

bring to boil and turn down and simmer for ten minutes

add chopped 1/4 of a cauliflower and one stick of celery

simmer for 7 minutes longer (your soup is cooked)

add 60 - 70 grams minimum of butter (3 ozs) I use butter instead of cream.






Now tonights water for the soup was this weeks stored veggie water ( veggie stock) that contained garlic. This was the first time I used garlic and it was DIVINE... however most of the time I use just salt. Other combinations I've used is fresh corriander (divine too), and at other times, black pepper... ALL of them work. Just with work what you have on hand in the fridge or cupboards.. but the soup contains 5 veggies and one or two cups a day is your minimum veggie allowance for good health. This is a very filling low calories soup PERFECT for well being and it tastes great. Just go easy on the butter otherwise too much kills the taste.

When it's all cooked, used a barmix to puree it to a creamy texture

That is a GREAT recipe... and another spice that goes with it is nutmeg... just a pinch.

I used that recipe up there again, cutting back the pumplin and doubling the amount of chicken and had Cream of chicken soup...

The funny thing about it was, it smelled like Chicken and Corn soup that you buy in a packet and yet, there was no corn in it.

It was 4 C last night... the soup was WONDERFULLY warming for the spirit.

I don't like bones because I always seem to get a tiny one and I can't stand accidentally chomping down on one in the last mouthful. There is nothing wrong with boiling the bones and straining off the liquid to use... in fact, I recommend that.
