    Every now and then I have a craving to make this beautiful, easy and hearty pumpkin soup, by adding a bit of cream it seems to gain an extra richness and smoothness.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 1kg pumpkin flesh, diced
    • 100g onions, finely diced
    • 50g unsalted butter
    • 1 cups (500ml) stock
    • 1 cup (250ml) thickened cream
    • salt and white pepper, to taste
    • 2 tablespoons creme fraiche
    • 2 potatoes, peeled and finely diced

    Directions
    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Heat butter in a saucepan and saute onions until soft and translucent.
    2. Add pumpkin and potatoes then simmer for a few minutes. Season with salt and pepper then add stock.
    3. Simmer soup for about 15-20 minutes over low heat. If soup is too thick add more stock.
    4. Puree soup with a hand blender.
    5. Stir in cream and heat again but do not boil.
