1 large onion chopped
half a medium pumpkin chopped
6 - 8 medium ripe tomatoes
2 cups of chicken stock (4-5 cubes)
2 teaspoons crushed garlic
2 teaspoons basil
Put everything in a soup pot. Bring to the boil,
cover and simmer
until pumpkin is soft.
Puree and then strain
Serve with lots of black pepper and sour cream
Once you have made this soup using the recipe above
you can then improvise like I do
garlic not crushed, basil not chopped
sometimes more pumpkin than tomato
sometimes the other way round!!
and truly, somewhere in there, there is also pumpkin
Top hated pumpkin soup and really disliked tomato soup
but this is one of his absolute favourites
and every year I fill a freezer drawer full.
on Sunday night a warm bowl and some crusty bread
In the height of summer sieve twice
so it is like velvet and serve cold
at the moment my freezer is full of many different types of soup
made by incredibly wonderful women
but there is no Tomato Lady Soup!!!
I thought you might like to try this with me
and we can all share a bowl
