Simple Pumpkin Soup

This is a very simple pumpkin soup recipe and in my opinion also a healthy one. There is quite a lot of pictures so please don't reply until I have posted everything.

Thanks and hope that everyone will go and try it.

1)Pick a ripe pumpkin or buy one and store in a cool, dry and dark place until ripe.

Prep the pumpkin.

1) Chop in half, scoop out the seed (can roast it if you want).
2) Peel it, I find it is less messy to peel it at this stage.

Chop the pumpkin up into equal size chunks.

1) Chop it up.
2) Drizzle a little vegetable oil of choice, pinch of salt and pepper. Coat and mix well.
3) Put into an over (no real need to preheat - 400F for about 30-40 minutes)

Whilst pumpkin is roasting, prep other things.

1) Onion and garlic, size of onion used and amount of garlic is dependent on size of pumpkin used.
2) Chop onion, use a sharp knife to avoid tears. Or chill the onion in the fridge before hand.
3) Chop the garlic, nothing fancy needed.

Normally I use homemade stock but I don't have any a the moment so I used store bought. Go for low sodium stuff if possible. I used chicken but beef broth would work just as nicely. If you want a totally vegetarian dish, just use vegetable stock.

1) Have the onion and garlic ready.
2) Preheat a pan with some vegetable oil.
3) Saute the onion for a bit.

Don't let the onion burn, just sweat it a little then add the garlic to it.

1) Add the garlic once the onion gets some colour to it.
2) Salt, pepper and herbs (use fresh or dry) I used some dried supermarket Italian herb in a bottle.
3) Add the stock once everything is smelling good. (READ ABOVE POST ^)
