For this foodie Friday I'm posting my easy but yet super delicious pumpkin soup with a green healthy side salade.This soups is so easy, just cook all the ingredients together in a pan with 750ml of water. Let it cool down and then put everything in a blender. It's super nice and creamy, healthy and has just the right amount of spicyness!
Cut the onions, celery, red chili, pumpkin and rasp a piece of ginger. Add olive oil to a pan untill hot. Then add all the ingredients, cook for about 3 minutes before adding the 750 ml of water. Cook it for 25 mintues, blend everything together in a blender, then toss it back into the pan. I always add a cube of chicken broth and a little bit of black pepper to flavor it some more. If you love ginger you can always rasp a bit more and add that too. If the soup gets too thick add some extra water.
For the salade, I just cut and stir fry zucchini and mushrooms with italian herbs and some salt and black pepper. I let it cool off and added that to some lettuce with a vinaigrette dressing. Cucumber and Feta cheese will go very well with this salade and will give it just some extra freshness and will balance out all the flavors.
If you ever decide to make it, let me know what you think?
