Introduction: Peachy Pumpkin Soup

Picture of Peachy Pumpkin Soup

Making soup by yourself is a great way to put something healthy on the table. You can make a normal veggiesoup or tomatosoup, but it's way cooler to put something creative on the table. I made a peachy pumpkin soup (with a little inspiration from my boyfriend) and it was delicious. The pumpkin goes really well with the sweet taste of peaches. Here's the super easy recipe!

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients

400-450 grams of Pumpkin (I hate cutting them actually, so I just bought pre-diced pumpkin)
6 Peach halves
1/2 piece Lemongrass
250 ml Cooking cream
2 Shallots
1 piece Garlic
1 tbs Tabasco (or whatever comes close. I used a dupe)
1 liter Water
2 cubes Herbs stock
10 grams Basil

You'll also need a handmixer or blender to make this.


Step 2: Let's Make Some Soup!

So it's easy, just follow my directions. Boil the water and add the stock cubes. Meanwhile, chop the shallots, lemongrass and garlic in to small pieces. Heat up a little oil in another pan and bake the shallots and lemongrass for a minute. Add the garlic and let it simmer for another minute. Now add the stock, pumpkin and peaches. Let that cook slowly for about 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile chop the basil. When the pumpkin is nice and soft put the mixer in there. Mix it 'til it's nice and smooth. If you use a blender, just put it in there 'til it's smooth. Now add the tabasco, basil and cooking cream. Stir and voila, it's done! Super easy and probably the loveliest pumpkin soup you'll ever eat.

Almost forgot to post my picture of this dish. But fortunately you were on the news this morning on Omroep Brabant. All I could think was I know that name they just told. Luckily I remembered it was from your soup.

Made this soup with coconut milk instead off cooking cream and I forgot the lemongrass. But this was a very nice soup, will be making this again in the future. Also added a link to this soup to an Instructable I'm making about eating soup. I'll let you know once it's online.

What!! This is fantastic - I've never seen the two combined. :D

I guess it works because they're both orange haha. It's really the best pumpkin soup I ever had. ^^

why do you call it "peachy"

Because there's peach in it. :)

I bet this would be good with coconut milk instead of cream too--for vegans. Sounds fantastic!

That should work yes. :)
