Pumpkin Soup step by step

  1. Please don't hesitate to try making this amazing soup despite not having a kitchen machine or the one I mention a lot in my recipes (called thermomix, short tmx)! I will give you other options of how you can easily prepare all fresh ingredients with all the chopping and pre-steaming..
  2. Add ginger to powerful blender, e.g. a Thermomix® at speed 10 for 2 sec until paste-like consistency.
  3. Add peeled garlic cloves ca. 10g and process speed 7 for 1sec.
  4. Add chopped spring onion or if not available any other mild onion (shallots are nice, too) into TMX.
  5. Speed 5 for 5sec until it looks rather shredded. Possible with a good cutting technique and a very good knife..
  6. Pour oil through opening in lid of tmx. Unless you have prepared everything manually or don't have a tmx, now is the time to add your onion-garlic-ginger mix to a pot, large enough to fit at least three liters of liquid with a good amount of oil.
  7. 100°C speed 2 for 3min or if preparing in pot: let heat up and stir occasionally until onions are lucid.
  8. Rince, destem, deseed and dice pumpkin. My favorite is hokkaido pumpkin because you can use skin and all to cut up. If you haven't got a blender or tmx, please follow steps of my steaming fresh pumpkin recipe now https://cookpad.com/us/recipes/450298-pumpkin-not-from-the-can.
  9. Add pumpkin to TMX or if working with pot, add steamed pumpkin from above recipe.

  12. In water kettle bring 600ml water to a boil.

  14. 90°C speed 1 for 20min. Pot method: after bringing to a boil and stirring well, let simmer at low temperature for 20 minutes.

  17. Speed 10 for 30sec or blending stick / blender at highest speed until bubbles form.
