Spicy pumpkin soup

French - In order to fully celebrate the autumn season (there is always something to celebrate) and as Halloween is coming pretty fast, such as dark and cold evenings, I thought a pumpkin soup would suit perfectly. In this soup I used 5 sorts of cucurbita: green & white pumpkins, a pomme d'or squash, a piece of butternut and two topinambour, plus a lot of spices and herbs. 

Recipe for four: 

  • 1 green pumpkin
  • 1 white pumpkin 
  • 1 pomme d'or squash 
  • 1 piece of butternut
  • 2 topinambour
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 shallot
  • 1 cm of ginger
  • 1 turmeric
  • 15 leaves of coriander (10 for the soup + 5 as a topping)
  • 2 tablespoons of curry
  • 1 tablespoon of nutmeg
  • 10 pumpkin seeds (as a topping)
  • organic vegetable broth
  • salt & pepper
  1. On medium heat, place all your ingredients in a big pan and cover with water.
  2. Cook for at least 20 minutes. It will be ready when putting a knife on a squash, it falls. 
  3. Once ready, put your pan aside and with a hand blender mix until right consistency.
  4. Pour in a bowl and add coriander and pumpkin seeds as toppings and salt and pepper to seasoning. 

Happy pumpkin dinner
