As mentioned in Day 58 of The Challenge
Did I mention that it's pumpkin season? We have bought a few (I won't say too many) again. I love pumpkin soup and we have it every year. This time though, instead of the traditional creamy spicy pumpkin soup, we went for chunky with a different range of flavours, still warming, but differently so.
1/2 pumpkin (or 2 small ones which is what I used), chopped
2 onions, chopped
1 head of garlic, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
2 sprigs of fresh thyme
2 sprigs of fresh oregano
1 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp Aloha Spiced Cacao
2 tsp zathar
2 tsp urfa biber (Turkish black chili)
3 c vegetable broth
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1) Heat oil in the bottom of a pot and sauté onions until translucent. Add garlic and peppers, and cook for a couple of minutes before adding pumpkin and broth. Throw in herbs and simmer for 20 minutes.
2) Add spices and simmer for a few more minutes, then taste test and check vegetables for tenderness.
Dead simple, warming and tasty. Perfect after a walk in cool autumn weather!
