Joachim’s Pumpkin Soup
It was about 10 years ago when I shared an appartment with 3 others in Munich. One of them, Joachim, made one day a pumpkin soup that became a classic among his friends. Eat this thick and creamy soup as a full meal.
As I am lazy, I always use Hokkaido pumpkin which you don’t have to peel.
Let’s start to make a soup for 4!
1 tblsp butter or oil
500 g pumpkin (I used 1000… recipes are only inspiration, aren’t they…?)
50 g rice (I used 3 small potatoes – no rice in the house…)
1/2 bunch of parsley
1 small leek
1/8 l white wine
3/4 l vegetable stock
50 g cream
50 g sour cream/crème fraiche
2 tblsp of pumpkin seeds
Chop the vegetables, sauté onions, leek and pumpkin in a large pot in the butter. Add the wine, rice, carrot, parsley and vegetable stock, bring to a boil and continue simmering for about 1/2 hour. Season (with salt and pepper), add cream and sour cream and blend the soup with the hand-held blender.
Toast the pumpkin seeds in a dry pan, chop them.
Serve the soup topped with pumpkin seeds. If you have, you can add a little bit of pumpkin seed oil.
