Winter is officially over in a few days here in the southern hemisphere. The past few months have been rather cold in Sydney, and today I’m sharing one of my favourite recipes to warm up from the inside out! This classic pumpkin soup recipe is hearty yet simple and quick to prepare, especially if, like me, you’re using a pressure cooker.
This soup has a silky textured. It can be served with crunchy croutons and/or seeds sprinkled on top to give it a little bite. Alternatively you can eat with a slice of buttered sourdough. Or on its own. Pumpkin is one of the very low calorie vegetables, high in dietary fibres (helps keep you fuller for longer), anti-oxidants, minerals and vitamins.
This Pumpkin Soup recipe is adapted from the pre-programmed Tefal Cook4me recipe.
