Recipe: Nanna's pumpkin soup

My mum came and stayed with us for a week recently, and it was wonderful to have her. It was almost like having a live in maid, as the dishes were always done and she even cooked and babysat! It's always really nice to have her over and sad to see her go at the end of her visit.

I'm sure she won't mind me sharing her special soup recipe. This one was a hit with Chloe who loves her Nanna's pumpkin soup!

1 butternut pumpkin
1 onion
1 granny smith apple
1 litre of stock (your choice)*
Cream to serve

1. Chop up the onion, pumpkin and apple in same size pieces. No special technique needed, just chop. I even left the skin on the apple.
2. Add the stock and cook in a moderatly heated pot until the pumpkin is tender.
3. Using a mixer, blend until smooth.
4. Add cream to serve and salt and pepper to taste, if you wish.

If you want, add coconut cream instead of regular cream and some chopped up coriander. This gives a really beautiful asian flavour. Yum!

Please remember to be careful when choosing stock. Many have added MSG and you will know all about it if you are intolerant to it, like me...

Hope you enjoy my family recipe. Leave me a comment if you make it and your family enjoy it as much as mine does.
