As we enter fall, we’ll begin to see all the different types of pumpkins arrive to the supermarkets. Many of them are used only as decoration, but I like using them to prepare my own seasonal dishes. The pumpkin is a very versatile fruit, used in preparing both sweet and salty recipes. Most commonly it’s made into pies or soups.

One of the recipes I enjoy preparing most is this cream of pumpkin soup, for its bright color and delicioso flavor.

Directions

  • 1 Start by cutting open the pumpkin and peeling each half. Next, remove the fiber and seeds from the pumpkin sides with a spoon. When clean, cut the sections into cubes.
  • 2 Separately, add some olive oil to a skillet and sauté the onion for a few minutes. Then incorporate the chopped pumpkin with a bit of salt, pepper and curry. Last, pour in the cream and stir well.
  • 3 Afterward, cover the contents of the skillet with water and place a lid on top. Let simmer over medium heat for around 30 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
  • 4 When ready, mash the mixture and serve immediately. Garnish with a few sprigs of parsley, dill and or a dash of cream.
