300 grams fresh peeled and chopped pumpkin, or canned pumpkin is ok too
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic,
I carrot, pelled and chunked
25 grams of fresh pasley, a nice small handful, chopped, stalk ok too
1-2 good quality bouillon cubes, I use organic veggie cubes, chicken good too.
enough water to cover veggies in pan and go over by about 1/2"
Salt and pepper to taste
Chop all veggies and herbs, make sure the pumpkin is peeeled before you chop it, and add to soup pot with all herbs and seasonongs. Add water and gently boil for about 30 minutes, or until tender. If you chop all of your veggies carefully in very small dice, you can serve as is. I prefer to take the immersion blener to it and purÃ©e, or put it in the blender and whizz. You can change the consistency with more or less water. Check for salt and pepper seasoning.
Nice first course, under 100 caleries for 2 big servings!
Number of Servings: 2
