Carrot & Pumpkin Soup

Pumpkin is one of those quintessential Winter soups. Creamy with a hint of sweetness, pumpkin soup couldn't get any better; or could it?

On a whim, I added two extra ingredients: carrot and ginger.

The result? This delicious carrot & pumpkin soup.





Ingredients

230g Diced Pumpkin
120g Diced Carrots
2 Cups of Salt Reduced Vegetable Stock
1 tsp Ginger
1/2 Onion (Diced)


Directions

Add the onion and ginger to your saucepan and cook until slightly caramelised
Throw in the diced pumpkin and carrots, turn up the heat and get some colour on the vegetables
Pour in the stock, put on the lid, and simmer the soup for 25-30 minutes or until the vegetables are well cooked
Allow the soup to cool before blending it (see the reason why, here)
Heat up the soup when needed
Season with a little cracked pepper

Makes 3 serves
