Creamy Light Pumpkin Soup

Submitted by: JR_MIDWIFE

Introduction

this is so easy to make and so yummy, my kids love this version. this is so easy to make and so yummy, my kids love this version.
Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    1.5 kg pumpkin, peeled and deseeded
    1 Litre Campbells real chicken stock
    2 cloves garlic - of course you can add more if you like
    1 can Carnation Light and Creamy Evaporated milk (375ml)
    1 large baked Potato with skin on,

Directions

Roughly chop pumpkin and peel garlic. Add to a pan (must have good fitting lid) with about 1/4 cup of the stock. Steam pumpkin until it is tender...keep an eye on the liquid level...this helps to give the pumpkin a nice strong flavour. once the pumpkin is soft add the rest of the stock and chopped baked potato (i do mine in the microwave) bring to the boil. mash or puree the soup and return to the pan adding the evaporated milk...do not boil at this stage.
sprinkle with parsley and lots of cracked black pepper.

makes 6 - 8 servings
