Roman Style Spicy n Creamy Pumpkin Soup

When we think of pumpkin,the first thought comes to our mind is "Ewwwww..i don't like it"Since my childhood i always hated pumpkin and Mum was really tired telling how good it will be for my health

The fact about it is that its one of the best known vegetables to humankind.It is not only loaded with vitamin A and antioxidants, but it’s a good source of vitamins C, K, and E, and lots of minerals, including magnesium, potassium, and iron.Its colour is beautiful and it makes us think of autumn,harvesting and brightness.

Today being a Sunday morning ,Me and Mum thought about it and made this quick easy Pumpkin soup,which is healthy tasty and so tempting.Dad loved it and so did we both


Red Pumpkin
Olive oil(Extra virgin is better)
Onions finely chopped
Garlic cloves
Fresh and finely cut Oregano,Parsley,Thyme,Rosemary,Basil
Black pepper powder
Chilly flakes/Red chilly powder

In a large bowl put water and chopped potatoes n pumpkins(75% pumpkins 25% potatoes)and bring to boil.
Take a separate pan and add the extra virgin olive oil .Now add finely chopped onions and finely chopped garlic cloves.Saute it till golden brown.Add the herbs+ chili Flakes+ black pepper powder.Now add the boiled pumpkin + potatoes.Let it cook well with onions mixture.Once it is cooked well add some water and milk.
Put the whole thing in a blender and puree till smooth.

Now finally put the puree on the flame and add cream..Garnish with herbs and serve hot with Garlic bread!!

Bon Appetit!!
